Event description

Description

Join us on the evening of the 26.01.2018 to take part in the second annual Big Sleep Out. Last year, we raised over £2,000 and had over 30 participants. This year, we hope to raise even more! All proceeds will be donated to Four Walls, which will help fund weekly outreach services.

Check out the charity's work here: https://www.fourwallscharity.com/

Those who take part will experience the smallest percentage of what rough sleepers face everyday. Participants are encouraged to arrive at 10:30 PM. You'll be offered a meal, tea, and coffee, similar to what Four Walls offer to rough sleepers during their outreach services. While you enjoy your meal, there will entertainment until midnight. After midnight, its lights out until sunrise.

Every participant will be given a cardboard box and this will be your bed for the evening. Everyone is encouraged to bring their own sleeping bag and/or blankets, as these will not be provided by RHUL Women's Network, Four Walls, or the Labour Soceity Help for the Homeless Campaign. Breakfast will be supplied in the morning and the event officially ends at 7:30 AM.

We will have a total of 7 stewards, wearing hi-vis, who will be there to help throughout the evening. Royal Holloway's security team have been informed about the event and we will be in contact with them throughout the evening.

This event is weather dependent and we will make the call to reschedule the day of the sleep out.
