The 'Big Sleep In' is coming.
Starting at 7pm on 23rd October
£5 per adult, kids take part free!
(This is a fundraising event so please do what you can to help us, help them as an amazing York Road Project fundraising hero!)
The event will start with some opening talks and information about Homelessness both locally and around the UK & Ireland.
To make it fun and keep you engaged we'll be having a Prize Quiz, Live music, Bed time story and even a fitness work out the following morning.
The rules... well.. It's really simple:
We are challenging you to sleep anywhere other than your bedroom in your house*, use a sleeping bag / roll mat AND additionally challenging you to avoid having food (specifically meals) throughout the event other than things like snack bars, crisps etc that someone who may be experiencing homelessness may be relying on.
Rough schedule (TBC) 23rd October
