Sleep rough so others don't have to!
Participants will sleep rough for one night outside Lincoln Cathedral to raise money for the homeless of Lincolnshire.
The funds that are raised from this event will go towards getting people off the streets, into warm beds and receiving the support they need to rebuild their future.
YMCA Lincolnshire is aiming to build a new facility, called The Nomad Centre, to create bed spaces for vulnerable people in Lincoln.
The centre will have single bedrooms for our emergency night shelter service users and move-on accommodation bedrooms. From this centre we will be able to provide support to individuals by providing access to mental health workers, dentists, doctors and other health professionals.
Money raised from Sleep Easy 2017 will contribute towards the cost of the project. We would like to encourage fundraisers to raise a target sponsorship of £50 each to help reach our £10,000 overall target.
Your participation and involvement is vital for this project to go ahead.
Challenge your family, friends and colleagues!
Please note: Participants must be 16 years and above. All young people under the age of 18 years must also be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times.
Your sponsors will make a difference.
