The Big SleepOut is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the Northampton Hope Centre, and we want you to help us make 2018’s SleepOut the best yet.
We want you to sign up to take part, not just to understand the realities of homelessness but also to help raise thousands of pounds for the charity which supports homeless and disadvantaged people.
Last year more than 170 sleepers took part raising a massive £60,000; in January 2018 we want to smash that total and have 180 sleepers taking part.
But to do this we need your help. Community fundraiser for the Northampton Hope Centre, Tanya Haji-Miller, said: “We want to challenge each and every one of you to leave your comforts at home for just one night and face the realities of homelessness in a safe, but probably uncomfortable environment.
“Even though the weather might be a bit temperamental, it’s a fantastic event to take part in, which is why so many people take part year after year.
“Why not sign up for the event with your friends and family to help us raise valuable funds and awareness of the vital work carried out by the Hope Centre.”
The event is taking place overnight on Friday 26 January at the home of Northampton Town Football Club, Sixfields Stadium.
Could you spend the night under the stars with just a sleeping bag?
