Event description
YMCA Northumberland is calling on local people to come together and take part in our Sleep Easy Fundraiser and sleep rough for one night.

About this Event

This year’s event will take place on Friday 6th March 2020 between 7pm and 7am and see supporters sleep out for one night to raise awareness of the hundreds of young people who sleep rough every year, as well as raise funds to help YMCA Northumberland to support young people in their services.

Participants will spend the night out with the chance to build your own carboard shelter.

YMCA Northumberland has hosted a number of Sleep Easy nights since 2010 and raised thousands of pounds in that time to support services to vulnerable young people in the area. In 2019 Sleep Easy participants in Northumberland raised an amazing £7500 in sponsorship.

Rob Cox, YMCA Northumberland Chief Executive, said: “We’re delighted to be holding this years Sleep Easy event at Ashington Football Club. At Sleep Easy 2019 the Chairman and the club gave us so much encouragement and support, so to be holding the event this time round at the ground will be really special”

“We are calling on the local community, old and young, to sign up to our Sleep Easy to help us support our services today and into the future. One night out can make a lifetime of difference.”

Local people interested in taking part in YMCA Northumberland’s Sleep Easy can find out more by visiting our website www.ymcanorthumberland.org.uk or contacting Rob on 01670 857167 or emailing at admin@ymcanorthumberland.org.uk
