Could you sleep rough for one night?

Every year we ask people to give up their bed for one night only so that others don’t have to. We provide a cardboard box, bubble wrap, a soup kitchen and bacon roll in exchange for raising awareness of homelessness and fundraising for our support services at YMCA Burton. In November, 240 people slept out to support us and we raised a record breaking £50,104. We had several WIRE Burton members join us again this year  to spend a night under the stars. Other group members helped with sharing our news, sponsorship or volunteering. Huge thanks to everyone who helped us. If you are interested in taking part in #Sleepout19 please get in touch. Thanks
