Advent Sleepout Challenge – Report and Support

Last year members from the community participated in the Advent Sleep Out Challengeand raised £394.30, this year we wanted to raise at least £500 and have already reached £932.17!!!!!!!  Thank you to all who have already donated, your contribution is making a big difference to the lives of people who are desperately in need of a place to sleep.

We did the sleep out last night in the church porch (pictures below), and with bits of sleep here and there, we made it through the night till the morning.  We are hoping to double our original goal, which is only £68 away – can you help?  If you haven’t yet supported the challenge but would like to please click here.  You can also help by sharing the link to people you know.  Just think, if only 14 people gave £5 we can double our original target!

A huge thanks to Lorna and Jamie who have been fundraising, promoting, and (most importantly) sleeping out at the church.   Although I didn’t make the photos, I can promise I was there 🙂

Thanks for your support,

Ready to begin:
