As part of Homeless Awareness Week, the Sleep Out brings together many supporters of homeless services in Bristol in one epic night of fundraising and awareness building. Brave the elements with us and hundreds of others at the Sleep Out 2017 to highlight the plight of those facing homelessness in our city, and raise vital funds to support some of Bristol’s most vulnerable women. From 10pm Friday 24th, to 7am Saturday 25th February, we will gain just a small insight into what it might be like to sleep on the streets without a safe place to call home. It will be cold and it will be tough, but we will take on the challenge together! Find out what last year’s sleep outers thought about the challenge in this film.
It’s free and easy. As soon as you sign up we will give you all the help you need to fundraise your socks off. Please note we are asking you to raise a minimum of £330 as this is a popular challenge event and places are limited. With your determination and our expertise we expect you will smash that target with ease. To sign up, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, e-mail address and contact number.
Feel uncomfortable asking people for donations? Don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of ideas that will build your confidence and make it much easier (and enjoyable) than you ever imagined! Make the most of your Sleep Out challenge by following our top tips to fundraising success – click here.
Tonight, in Bristol, a homeless woman is doing her best to survive another night on the streets. This is a woman you may never see sleeping on the streets and who you are unlikely to find in night shelters. Her homelessness is restless. It can involve night after night on the move, constantly watching her back, a relentless struggle to survive.
By sleeping out for One25 you are giving one night of your life to help her step away from the streets for good. The money you raise will help extremely vulnerable women find a way out of street sex work and could change their lives forever. In the last year alone, this support has helped 70 women into safer housing: through accessing hostels, rehab and refuges. And 59 amazing women were able to leave street sex work behind them – that’s 40% of all the women out there! Incredible stuff! But we must not forget those who remain. Every woman matters. Let’s turn the red lights green.
