Help The Brick raise awareness and money for rough sleepers throughout Wigan & Leigh on the 24th April, as we try and highlight some of the many challenges faced every night.
By raising money with friends, family members and colleagues you can help support vital projects that allow The Brick to support people transitioning through homelessness. By swapping your bed for a sleeping bag and raising money you can help ensure rough sleeper can have warm and safe accommodation, nutritious meals every night.
This years Sleepout will be held at the galleries outdoor market. The event will start at 9:00pm. Participants will be provided with an evening meal as well as performances from live musicians, theatre groups and an outdoor cinema. Breakfast will be served in the morning and the event will finish at 6:00am.
Please note the Sleepout is a fundraising challenge that doesn't replicate what its like to sleep rough, but gives participants an idea of the situation a lot of people find themselves in, while also supporting those who face this as a reality.
