The annual national event challenges participants to face the cold of a winter night and swap their bed and blankets for a sleeping bag and cardboard mat, fundraising for homeless young people in the UK. Although the event does not aim to replicate homelessness, it provides an insight into what it might be like.
We’re asking you to swap your bed for somewhere new. That could be a sofa, under the dining room table, your garden, your balcony, your office car park (with permission) – the choice is yours.
Yes it may not be the most comfortable night, and yes, you may not get a good night’s sleep. But we promise that every single person taking part and raising money will make a difference to the lives of homeless young people throughout the UK.
