Support the work of Sussex Central YMCA and get sponsored to sleep out for one night on 1st March 2013.
Sleep Easy is a national fundraising challenge organised by YMCA’s across the UK. This year Sussex Central YMCA is brining Sleep Easy to Burgess Hill.
The aim of Sleep Easy is to raise awareness of the realities of homelessness and also raise money to support the work of Sussex Central YMCA. The charity provides 251 bed spaces every night to young people who would otherwise be homeless.
A resident and volunteer says of Sussex Central YMCA: "They helped me when I needed a roof over my head. When I wasn't very well and had no one to turn to they supported me. I don't like to think about what would have happened to me if Sussex Central YMCA wasn't there."
Sleep Easy is taking place on:
Friday 1st March 7pm-7am
The Bandstand, Burgess Hill Town Centre, West Sussex RH15 9NN
In previous years sleepers braved temperatures of -4 degrees, waking up to frost covered boxes and sleeping bags. Their efforts weren’t in vain and the event raised over £7000.
Cardboard boxes, hot drinks and breakfast will be provided for all sleepers. Sign up to the event today and support the work of Sussex Central YMCA by spending one night under the stars.
Registration fee is £10 (£5 for under 18s). Click here to sign up.
