Event description
Join us for the 12th Big Bath Sleep Out on Friday 5th March. Sleep out for just one night to help men and women forced to do so every night.

About this Event

Join us for the 12th Big Bath Sleep Out on Friday 5th March 2021. Take action against homelessness and help vulnerable men and women at most risk during this pandemic. You can make the difference.

Registrations ends 12pm on Friday 5th March.

The on-going and long-term impact of the Coronavirus has had a devastating effect on the men, women and children we support and how we support them. Most of our fundraising events have been postponed or cancelled and our charity shops and bike shops had to close for a period at the start of lockdown. Due to this, we’re expecting an income loss of at least £200,000. This is vital income, needed to fund our life saving services at this most challenging time.

But, you can change things. By challenging yourself to sleep out for one night at this year's event and raising sponsorship, you'll make an even greater impact to the lives of very vulnerable people who have been frightened, isolated and at-risk during this on-going pandemic.

So, stand up against homelessness. Challenge yourself, friends, family and colleagues to sleep out for one night and help provide the life saving services and support people on the streets so desperately need right now.

We do not charge an entry fee but hope that you will try and raise at least £100 so that we can continue to provide vital support to homeless and marginalised men and women in and around Bath. 

Your entry includes:

  • Fundraising and training support, ideas and tips
  • Bacon sandwich (or muffin) and hot drink for breakfast in the morning
  • Certificate for every child that takes part

We will also be providing:

  • Emergency shelter for extreme weather
  • Professional security
  • Basic First Aid support
  • Toilets
