Events are a crucial way of fundraising to maintain our services for homeless and vulnerable people. They are also great fun – so have a look below and see how you could join in!
Big Sleep Out 2018
Save the Date – Friday 11th May 2018. The Big Sleep Out is back and in a brand new venue!
The number of people who are homeless is on the rise. Not only people sleeping on the streets, but ‘hidden homeless’ living in hostels, sofa surfing or in unsuitable, temporary accommodation. Trinity Winchester exists to support people out of this situation, and you can help too!
Join us on 11th May 2018 for the Big Sleep Out, an eye opening night spent sleeping at Wolvesey, the Bishop of Winchester’s Garden.
Enjoy an evening of acoustic entertainment, build yourself a cardboard shelter to sleep in, and raise money and awareness to reduce homelessness. And then from 10pm there will be nothing. No lights, music, and nowhere to go. Will you be able to get some sleep?
Every penny that you raise in sponsorship will go back into Trinity’s services, offering long-term, positive change.
This event is not an experience of being homeless. We cannot imagine the realities of sleeping rough every night. We will return to the comfort of our homes the following morning, which is not an option for thousands of people. This event is an interesting way to raise vital funds, whilst having a challenging night.
If you are unable to sleep out, please join us between 7-10pm for entertainment, and to support our sleepers.
