Big Summer SleepOut 2021
14th August 2021 - 15th August 2021
About this event
Turning Tides are calling on the community to give up their beds on the night of Saturday 14th August to raise money for, and show solidairty with, the rising number of people who are experiencing homelessness in West Sussex.
The Big Summer SleepOut is a fun, free event that invites anyone and everyone to surrender their bed for just one night, choosing an alternative place to sleep – slip into a sleeping bag, bundle up in the bath, snooze under the stairs, doze in a den or just sleep out under the stars – and we are offering prizes for the best dressed den, during an evening of quizzes, stories, games and Q&As on the event’s live stream.
“This is such a fun way to really make a difference in our local community, The Big Summer SleepOut offers a brilliant family-friendly way to highlight homelessness and reflect on people who are less fortunate.” – Ruth Poyner
Homelessness can happen to anyone – especially now – and we need everyone’s support to end it. Why not rope in as many friends and family as you can and have a socially distanced SleepOut that makes a massive social difference?
We will provide participants with everything they’ll need to fundraise – including a DIY Summer SleepOut pack. It’s easy and free to take part!
