Event description

Description

No one should have to sleep rough in winter. WE'RE CHOOSING TO.

The Cambridge Convoy Refugee Action Group (CamCRAG) and Wintercomfort for the Homeless (Wintercomfort) in cooperation with the Cambridge Churches Homelessness Project are hosting a sponsored rough sleepout for one night on Homeless Sunday, 28 January, at St Giles Church, Cambridge, to raise awareness and practical aid for refugees and homeless in Cambridge and Calais. During the afternoon of the 28th of January the charities will host a launch event from 4pm to 7:30pm at St. Giles’ open to the public with food, information sharing, speeches and New Year's pledges. A small number of volunteers will then take part in the actual sleepout.

All donations will be split equally between Wintercomfort and CamCRAG. The proceeds of this event will be used to provide aid such as blankets, food and emergency provisons to refugees and homeless in Cambridge and Northern France.

Charity begins at home. It doesn't end there.
