A mass SleepOut to help end homelessness in Coventry… for good!

Organised by Coventry Three Spires Round Table

 

We’re inviting you to join us and up to 100 others at Coventry & North Warwickshire Cricket Club on Saturday 27th October 2018 for a SleepOut in aid of Homelessness. You’ll be joined by other like-minded people who want to make a difference in our great city by sleeping in the cold for one night.

By raising funds and working together, we can stop the sticky plaster mentality and get to the root issues with a plan to eradicate homelessness in the city by providing people with housing, rehabilitation, job opportunities and the support they need to get back on their feet.

We want to make Coventry an example for the whole world to follow. We’re a big city, with a proud heritage of humanity and resilience. We can do this. We just need you!


Donations

Whether you are participating in the event or not we are encouraging you to one or more of the following pages to help eradicate homelessness in Coventry. Any donation big or small will be greatly received.

 

Sleeping rough so they don't have to!

What’s in it for me?

Many people around the country have to do this every night, could you do it once? That said we have some nice perks to help you through your experience:

• A City SleepOut 2018 scarf to keep you warm through the night.

• Hot soup up until midnight on 27th October.

• A bacon/sausage batch and hot tea or coffee in the morning at 7am when you wake.

• Cardboard boxes will be provided to make participants stay as authentic and comfortable as possible. Feel what it’s like to live this way every night!

• City SleepOut is a social event, making new friends and helping each other through the challenge. Why not use it as a team building event for your business. Corporate and Social Reasonability… done!

• A warm fuzzy feeling of achievement!
