Please help us!!! We are braving a cold winter night by swapping our beds for sleeping bags and a cold hard floor in a warehouse to help us support young homeless people in Sheffield. We have been inspired by young people supported by Roundabout and heard how youth homelessness is an issue in our city.
The Sleep Out is simple!
After enjoying some food and entertainment during the evening, at midnight its lights down and into sleeping bags as the challenge begins. There are plenty of people who think some of us won't be able to handle it...so please give us plenty of encouragement by supporting us and donating to the cause! We will also be challenging ourselves throughout the next few weeks by giving up some of our favourite things in preparation including fast food, coffee, chocolate and Greggs!!
