October 17 Big Sleep Outs and Celebration

We invite you to join us

In October, to sample a small taste of what it might be like to be homeless. Once again we aim to raise money and awareness of the struggles the homeless face in this city and the work Hope into Action does combatting those issues. We will have live music, camp fires, talks from tenants and other special guests.

Wolverhampton

The Wolverhampton Big Sleep In / Out is a joint event between Hope into Action Black Country and the Wolverhampton Church Shelter to raise funds and awareness around homelessness in the City of Wolverhampton. It is on Friday 13th October from 7pm to 7am the next day at Tabernacle Baptist Church @ Broad Street, Westbury St, Wolverhampton WV1 1JD. This is the venue where the shelter will be hosted from 1st November.

There will be an evening of refreshments, entertainment and information on homelessness and what is being done to tackle these issues with the Wolves Community Trust and the Wolves mascot making an appearance. This will then be followed by a night of sleeping on cardboard boxes either in a marquis on the car park if you are feeling hardcore, in the church hall or on one of the camp beds in a manner similar to those who use the shelter

Registration is via Eventbrite and all participants sign up and commit to raising £100 in sponsorship. All funds raised will be divided equally between Hope into Action and the shelter. If you wish to raise funds online, do feel free to use the event’s Give.net page.
