Can you Sleep Out with SSJ to create awareness of homelessness in Hampshire and to help us raise money to continue our work with this vulnerable group?
Hundreds of people across the UK sleep outside every night and the number continues to rise. Whilst the problem is becoming more visible on our streets, there are also thousands of ‘hidden homeless’ in hostels, sofa surfing and in unsuitable, temporary accommodation.
If, like us, you believe that everyone has the right to a safe, secure home, please join us for our annual Sleep Out to raise awareness of this growing problem and to raise money to support the vital work of the Society of St James in tackling homelessness.
This year we are asking people to aim to raise £100 sponsorship to spend a night under the stars. All the money raised at this year’s event will help us to purchase a new property in Hampshire so that we can assist more people off the streets and on to brighter futures.
Last year the event was held in two halves, with Southampton Sikh Seva providing a delicious meal for everyone and a showcase of some great local music talent!
Southampton Ukulele Jam, Junco Shakers, Mike Vaughan, Neko Roshi, Blue Ruby, Mary Red, Callum Lintott, James Baxter,Lucy Kitchen, Dan Of and Honey and the Bee all joined us in 2017 to provide guests with some amazing entertainment before the difficult task of bedding down for the night, outside, on a cold November evening.
Sponsorship Target: £100 per person / £1500 per team of ten
