Last advent, churches and communities across England stood up to homelessness and marginalisation by taking the Advent Sleepout Challenge.
But now advent is around the corner again and what we want to know is, are you up for the challenge? Could you brave a night sleeping out?Sleeping out in churches, cathedrals, halls, and even a home-made stable, the excellent fundraisers of Advent Sleepout Challenge 2015 raised a massive £93,450.
Get together with friends and take a stand against homelessness this advent. Last year as many as 3,569 people were sleeping rough on any given night in England. This number is a 30% increase on 2014 and double the figure for 2010.
Together we can make a change.
Since 2014 CUF has been able to
invest £156,000 into projects to support the homeless and marginalised.
Speaking about her experiences of Advent Sleepout Challenge 2015 Claire from Oxford said, “It’s really nice simple way to raise money and also have a lot of fun in the process.”
If you want to be a part of this change and if you think you are up for the challenge, registration is now open, so get yourself signed up!
