Charity Link Sleepover Update

Huge thanks to everyone who supported the Charity Link Sleepover 2021, which took place on 29th January.

We had lots of young guests this year which was great to see.  Whether you slept out in a tent in the garden for the night (we did see photos of tents with ice and snow on top!) or for those who camped out in dens under tables in the house – a massive thank you!

For every £25 you’ve raised Charity Link will be able to provide a bed for someone who doesn’t have this basic item which so many of us are lucky enough to take for granted.  We’ll also provide essential items such as winter clothing, school uniforms, cookers, washing machines…your support really will help to improve the lives of so many people.

It was great to see photos of everyone in their Sleepover hats (kindly donated by Everything Community) and drinking their hot chocolate (kindly donated by Asda, Oadby store).

We’ll update on the final total raised by all our guests in the coming days, but so far we’ve reached over £1,500 which is amazing!  (You can still donate to the team page below).

Next year – when hopefully things will be more back to normal – we hope to have our usual January Sleepover get together at our office courtyard in Leicester city centre.  We’ll also be inviting you to take part again at home too: your sleepover, your way!
