Description

A TIME FOR CELEBRATION, CONTEMPLATION & HOPE

We would very much like you to join us at a special event celebrating the 30 years that Julian House has been supporting homeless and excluded men and women. The Vigil will take place in Bath Abbey on Friday 17th November with the further option of taking part in a sponsored ‘Sleep-In’ after the Vigil.

The evening will be an opportunity to reflect on the issues which surround homelessness, and a time for celebration, contemplation and hope. Those taking part in the Sleep-In, will be able to experience what it is like not to sleep in a comfortable and warm bed.

It will also be an opportunity to find out more about the many projects Julian House are now running, supporting homeless and marginalised people in Bath and in the South West.

The Vigil starts at 9.30pm and ends at Midnight, when the overnight Sleep-In starts.

We do hope that as a supporter of our aims and work you, along with any friends and family, will be able to celebrate this milestone achievement with us in the magnificent setting of the Abbey.
