As the Covid-19 pandemic continues and we remain under strict government restriction, we are taking the Bethany Sleep Out ONLINE and bringing the spirit of the Sleep Out to you at home, virtually!
We’re calling on you all to sleep out on the night of 19th March but rather than doing so in one big venue, sleep out at home! Choose a secure, isolated environment such as a private garden, allotment, garage or even a fort in your living room – the choice is yours!
Many people experiencing homelessness or precarious housing situations have struggled to find a safe space to self-isolate or socially distance throughout the pandemic. Could you give up your warm and comfortable bed to honour men, women and families who use Bethany services and raise vital funds for our work this year?
Here are some examples of the difference your support could make:
- £40 could provide an emergency food package for someone starting a new Universal Credit claim, including food, laundry detergent, toiletries and sanitary products for female tenants
- £138 could buy 1,000 compostable cups and lids for our Care Van volunteers to serve hot drinks and soup to those experiencing food poverty
- £225 could fund a place on our Bridge to Freedom programme for someone starting recovery from addiction.
It doesn’t matter where you Sleep Out, all that matters is you are supporting the most vulnerable people by coming together this year and making a noise online!
