Thank you for taking part in the Big Summer SleepOut 2020!


By sharing in the Big Summer SleepOut experience with us you are highlighting homelessness. By fundraising together we can show solidarity – giving hope to hundreds of men and women who are homeless in our local communities right now.

On this web page you will find everything you need to make your SleepOut fun and meaningful.

  • We have a great schedule lined up below which we are holding virtually via Zoom and Facebook Live.
  • We have some fun activities and games to get everyone involved.
  • We have thought provoking podcasts you can listen to.
  • Lastly, we can help you with your fundraising ideas and ways to get your donations to us.

Don’t forget to post your den photos on Facebook with tag #BigSumerSleepOut2020
– a lucky winner will get a lovely hamper of goodies!
