Sleepout and help tackle homelessness

Sleepout and help tackle homelessness

We're preparing for our annual charity sleepout on Friday 29 March 2019 and we're looking for volunteers!

Armed with only a cardboard box, blankets and a sleeping bad, those who take part will help to raise awareness of some of the issues faced by those who are homeless, whilst raising vital funds for local charities.

The sleepout will take placer in the secured grounds of the Crown Oil Arena from 7pm until 7am. It will be a safe and fun event, with access to toilets and refreshments available.

To participate or donate please contact for a sponsor pack. You must complete a registration form to take part.
