Event Description

Turning Tides would like to invite you to join us in this year’s Annual Sponsored Sleepout to be held in the playground at Broadwater C of E School, Worthing.

There will be a barbeque, starting at about 7:30pm, which will give you a chance to meet the other people taking part.  If you would like to join in with this please tick the appropriate box on the Registration Form ; this does not commit you to anything but it gives us an idea of numbers. If you would prefer to come along later, please arrive from 9.00pm.  You will need warm clothes (a hat is essential!) and bedding as well as material to build a shelter.

Anyone under 16 years old must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or carer.

At this time of year a fundraising event like this is particularly poignant and we hope you are able to join us. To register your interest please return the Registration Form to Turning Tides, Town Hall, Chapel Road, Worthing West Sussex, BN11 1HA or email it to rachel.blair@turning-tides.org.uk . We will send you a Sponsor Form and any further information. Sponsorship, donations and fundraising can be arranged via BT MyDonate at https://mydonate.bt.com/events/Turning Tidessleepout2017 .

Previous participants feel that while sleeping out for a night in these circumstances can be fun it also gives us an idea of what it must be like for those who have to do this every night of the year.

During the night the kitchen is open all evening and there is access to toilets.  The playground provides a secure environment for us to experience what it is like to have to sleep outside.

Thank you for considering helping us raise funds to help the 1000 people who turn to us every year and supporting them in their recovery journey out of homelessness, and for caring about our clients.
