The Big Sleep Out Returns to Taunton!

Could you spend just one night sleeping outside and make a difference to the lives of those experiencing homelessness locally?

Our Big Sleep Out returns to Taunton on the 9th of June and we're looking for participants to take on the challenge!  Each year, we have an incredible group of 'sleepers' who raise vital funds and awareness and this year we'd love to make that impact even bigger. 

Our annual fundraising event, where we ask participants to get sponsored to sleep outside for one night, directly contributes towards changing the lives of people suffering with homelessness locally. By supporting our work and ensuring we can provide the services needed, we are showing those struggling that we're here!

This year participants can choose to take part in-person or virtually. Our in-person sleep out is held in our car park at The Crescent in Taunton, and participants will enjoy live music, hot food and socialising before settling into sleeping bags for the night. If you choose the virtual option, you can sleep out at home or any other location and watch our live stream of entertainment. Whilst the Big Sleep Out shows some of the harsh realities of homelessness, we do not intend to replicate rough sleeping and so the event is safe and suitable for everyone to take part.

So, are you ready to accept the challenge? The event is suitable for all ages and we often have children attend with family. You can take part on your own or as a group - so rally round your friends, family or work colleagues? The more people that take part the more funds we can raise! 

To sign up, simply fill out our registration form online which can be found here

There is a £5 registration fee per participant to help us cover the cost of the event. Once registered, you'll receive an information pack and sponsorship details so you can begin your fundraising.
