Help Stonepillow raise vital funds by taking part in the Big Sleep Out 2018
Stonepillow’s annual fundraising event, The Big Sleep Out, takes place on Saturday 13th October in the grounds of Chichester Cathedral. The event kicks off with a live performance at 2:00pm, as everyone arrives to start building their cardboard shelters before putting them to the test for the night. Participants get sponsored to sleep out to raise vital funds for the charity and increase awareness of homelessness in the local area.
Laura Bulbeck, PR & Events Manager said, ‘The Big Sleep Out is a fantastic event which sees individuals, groups and businesses in the community coming together to help end homelessness. We encourage everyone to get involved, make a difference and help us raise us much as possible. We would like to say a huge thank you to this year’s sponsors, Kiwi Recruitment for all of their support’.
Stonepillow hopes to raise £30,000 this year and every penny will go directly towards providing essential support to local homeless and vulnerable people. The event does not aim to replicate homelessness but it does give a small insight into some of the harsh realities of rough sleeping.
