Annual Sleepout Raises £3000!
In January 2020, the Hope4 fund-raising group organised its annual Sponsored Sleepout. There was good local support including from the Mayor. The event provided an opportunity to raise awareness of homelessness in Rugby, and for supporters to sample a night sleeping on the streets which was quite an eye opener for some. The event raised funds of almost £3000. See our video below about our 2019 Sleepout.
In future, the group intends to provide resources for local groups to organise a sleepout at their own location (scout groups, church youth groups etc.) so that more people are able to take part in this fundraising activity in their own location and at their own convenience.
