The Big Sleep Out 2019
14 June 2019 - 6:30 pm - 15 June 2019 - 8:00 am| £10
Arc are excited to announce that The Big Sleep Out is back for its 5th year!
The idea behind the Big Sleep Out is for participants to get sponsored to sleep outside for just one night, in order to raise valuable funds and awareness for the homeless.
Although the evening will show some of the harsh realities faced by rough sleepers, the key aim is to raise the funds so that no one has to face homelessness. The night is therefore made enjoyable too for the fantastic participants who are giving up their beds for a night!
At the event there is hot food, live music and plenty of socialising. When the night draws in, participants will settle down in sleeping bags and attempt to sleep, with no roof above our heads! The event is suitable for all ages – in previous years the youngest participant has been 4 and the eldest 84!
As well as being an eye opener, the money raised goes a long way towards supporting homeless people in Somerset.
This year the sleep out is on Friday 14th June and will take place in Arc’s very own car park, located at the back of Arc’s head office at 7 The Crescent, Taunton.
People can take part in groups, with family, friends or colleagues, bring your children or come alone and meet lots of great people, all there for the same reason – to help the homeless.
To sign up, you simply need to fill out a registration form and return it to Arc along with a small registration fee.
You can download the registration form at: www.arcinspire.co.uk/bigsleepout or Arc can email or post the form to you – Just contact Rosie on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01823 271326 to request.
