Why Sleep Out?
- There are 250,000 people who are homeless in England
- 120,000 of these are children
- In Winchester, Trinity work with 650 vulnerable people every year – over half of whom have nowhere to call home
When and Where?
- Friday 5th May 2017
- Winchester Cathedral
- From 6 – 10pm, we will be hosting a celebration evening. All are welcome to join us for live music, a hot meal, and entertainment. Click here to see all the performers, entertainers and caterers.
- Use the cardboard provided to build a structure to keep yourself safe, warm and sheltered.
- Lights out from 10pm – no noise, just you and the attempt to get some sleep.
- Enjoy a breakfast roll before heading home to wash, sleep and get warm – which isn’t an option for the thousands who have to sleep rough every night.
How Can I Get Involved?

Why should I raise money for Trinity?
Could pay for two counselling sessions for a woman fleeing domestic abuse
Could pay for hot meals for one person for 3 months
Could pay the building costs for one day
Could pay for a full year of support for a homeless person.
Last year Trinity worked with 650 people.
The Big Sleep Out is not intended to be an experience of rough sleeping, or being homeless. For Trinity, this is an interesting way to raise money, and raise awareness of our work.
