Why Sleep Out?
- There are estimated to be 250,000 people who are homeless in England
- 130,000 of these are children
- In Winchester, Trinity work with over 600 vulnerable people every year – over half of whom have nowhere to call home
When and Where?
- Friday 11th May 2018
- Wolvesey, the Bishop of Winchester’s Grounds
- During the evening we will enjoy live acoustic music, speeches and activities for children (and the young at heart!)
- 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 some breakfast with us 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 provide five hot meals for somebody sleeping rough
Could run one session of Job Club, providing 1:1 supporting to help people back into employment
Could allow access for one woman to Trinity Women’s Service for a whole year
Could provide six sessions of counselling for somebody with addiction and / or mental health issues
Could provide an entire year of support for somebody accessing Trinity’s services
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.
With thanks to our supporters
