Event description

Description

Alabaré's flagship event, The BIG Sleep welcomes those who want to take a stand against homelessness. By sleeping out, participants will raise awareness of those forced to call the streets home and also raise much needed funds.

So come armed with cardboard, warm clothes, a sleeping bag or two, and a huge heart. You will be challenged to sleep under the stars at Salisbury Cathedral Cloisters for one night. An impressive and humbling venue that gives a real sense of how blessed we are to be able to go back to a warm and dry home afterwards.

Everyone who signs up pledges to raise a minimum of £100 (£50 for anyone aged 14-18) for Alabaré's work with the most vulnerable. Anyone who raises £150 (£100 if a young people) or more (excluding gift aid) will win two tickets to the Odeon Cinema (excludes London and IMax)

We know many of the rough sleepers Alabaré helps understand the priceless bond between themselves and their canine companions, when life on the streets is their reality, so we are welcoming 20 well behaved dogs to join us once again this year.

Anyone bringing a dog must read our Rules For Well Behaved Dog Owners below before signing up.

Once you have signed up, a full fundraising and event pack will be sent to you.

If you have any questions about the event or raising sponsorship, please email fundraising@alabare.co.uk

Thank you so much for helping us to end homelessness.


Rules For Well Behaved Dog Owners

We are delighted you and your canine companion are joining us. There will be people of all ages there - from secondary schools to the retired, and we cannot assume everyone is as much a fan of dogs as we are, so please:

1. Ensure your dog in under your control at all times. Any dog that is unable to behave will be asked to leave.

2. Your dog must remain on a lead at all times.

3. Do not allow your dog to go off wandering. We expect your dog to be by your side and on a lead throughout the night.

4. Please ensure your dog has been to the toilet outside the cloisters before coming into the event. There will be a door that will remain unlocked throughout the night should you need to take your dog for a loo break.

5. Please try to prevent your dog from going to the bathroom against any of the building - we accept accidents can happen so please use the disinfectant spray afterwards should this occur.

6. The grass at the centre of the cloisters is sanctified ground and no-one can enter.

7. Some of our Big Sleepers will be great fans of dogs. Please only bring a dog that has the personality to cope with a bit of fame and fuss. We will ask everyone to ask you if it is ok to approach beforehand.


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

All participants must be 14 plus at the time of the event. Anyone aged under 18 must bring a signed consent form to enable them to participate. Please email fundraising@alabare.co.uk if you need either a parent concent form or a photograph permission form. Everyone under 18 must have both signed by their parent or guardian.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
