Open Door St Albans
St Albans Sleepout 2023
Fundraising for Open Door St Albans
Once again the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of St Albans are braving the cold to sleep out and raise funds for the Open Door charity .
The Open Door night shelter on Bricket Road can accommodate 12 people year round, but for the sixth winter running the charity will provide extra beds throughout the coldest season. This year the charity will be partnering with Emmaus, St Saviours and St Albans Council to deliver the project.
The Winter Beds Project provides people who would otherwise be rough sleeping with self contained sleeper cabins. Each cabins provides secure, Covid safe accommodation with heating, electricity and en-suite facilities. Guests of the project are supported to find secure accommodation to move on to by the rough sleeper outreach team. Last year the project ran from December through to the beginning of April and accommodated 17 people, 11 of which moved on to secure accommodation.
Help us support the night shelter and Winter Beds Project by sponsoring us. We can't do it without you.
