Solidarity Sleepout

Spend a night sleeping rough and show solidarity for those who don't have a place to call home

Invite a group from your church, youth group or family to spend a night sleeping out, raising sponsorship for people who have no place to call home.   

Camp out for those who have no place to call home 

You could camp out, sleep in your local church hall or hang up a tarpaulin and sleep rough. Add in a simple meal and share stories to make your solidarity sleepout a night to remember. 

Raising just £60 could provide blankets, mattresses, pillows and a cooking set for a Syrian refugee family in Iraq. Your one night of sleeping rough could make their hardship more bearable.
