Story

We did it! ! !

This year, on Friday 1 December, our team of 37 sleepers - staff and volunteer adults plus some brave children - slept outside St Columba's Church in Knightsbridge as a team to raise crucial awareness and funds for the work of our charity, RESTART LIVES.

We’re ever so proud of everyone who took part and thank all the generous supporters, donors, givers to this page who are contributing as much or as little as they can. We thank you.

The evening was a very cold one hitting the minus temperatures (below zero degrees) yet our team stuck it out and completed the challenge they intended to do! Well done all!

If you’d like to show you support for the participants and the charity, there’s still plenty of time and we’re working hard to reach our ambitious target of £100k. This page will remain open until April 2024 so please feel free to share, donate and help us before then.

Funds will help us run group programmes, one to one advice and support, hot food service/community space and provide resources to those most in need.

We believe that everyone deserves a roof over their head but the reality is that there are still thousands (271,000 households in England in 2023) without a place to stay or call home.

All the work that we do is made possible by those that give their time and donations. We hope you’ll take part and join us in working to break the cycle of homelessness.

Thank you so much!

From everyone at RESTART
