Event description

Description

Join us for the 1st Big Basingstoke Sleep-Out on Saurday 17th October 2020. (Postponed from March 2020)

Stand up against homelessness by challenging yourself, friends, family and colleagues to sleep out for one night and help raise vital funds and awareness for those forced to do so every night. Giving up just one night really could transform the lives of others.

We do not charge an entry fee but hope that you will try and raise at least £100 each so that we can continue to provide vital support to homeless and marginalised men and women in and around Basingstoke. You will be amazed at how many people will be willing to sponsor you.

The Big Basingstoke Sleep-Out, brought to you by Julian House and sponsored by Newbury Building Society, will be held in partnership with local homeless charity, The Camrose Centre - Basingstoke’s own open access day centre for homeless and vulnerably housed people/
