The Big Sleep Out has gone virtual for 2020!

Due to current guidelines and restrictions in place, we are unable to hold the Big Sleep Out in its usual form... but all is not lost - we're going virtual!

*Whilst we have updated some of the information here to represent our new Virtual Big Sleep Out, more information will follow soon to tell you exactly how it'll all work! Watch this space... *

What is the Big Sleep Out? 

The idea is for participants to sleep outside for just one night in order to raise valuable funds and awareness for the homeless. The funds raised go towards the support services Arc provides for the homeless in Somerset.

When and Where is the Big Sleep Out? 
The virtual Big Sleep Out will be held on Friday 19th June 

As the Big Sleep Out has now turned virtual, you'll be sleeping outside in your own gardens or other alternative space - get creative!

‚ÄčWho can take part?
Everyone!  As long as your health allows you to safely sleep outside for the night.

You can do it alone,  with your family or housemates - anyone who lives with you can get involved! Why not encourage friends to do it from their gardens too and you can all share your experiences?!

How do I get involved?
