Charity Link Sleepover

November 11, 2022

Can you last from 8pm to 8am the following morning and go without a warm, comfy bed for one night in order to help people in hardship and crisis across Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire?

Our annual sleepover is a special event which makes a lasting impression on people and helps to provide vital items, like beds and clothing for those most in need.

Join us at our Leicester city courtyard or take part in your chosen location…

Our annual Sleepover, which sees a group of amazing people go without their comfy warm bed for one night to help others, is back on the evening of Friday 11th November!

You just need warm clothing, a sleeping bag and a bit of grit and determination – no training required!

Due to our unique way of working, every £25 raised can help to provide a bed to someone in need who is currently living without this essential item.

There are two ways to get involved:

  • Join us at our Leicester City Centre Courtyard (there is a tunnel for cover if the weather is bad and access to a toilet!)
  • Take part in your own home (or office or other chosen location). In the past children have camped under dining tables and friends have slept in tents in the garden

Registration fees help us cover the cost of running the event. Guests then gain sponsorship or undertake fundraising activities to raise funds, all of which goes directly to provide essential items to help people living in hardship across Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire. Due to our unique way of working, every £25 raised helps to provide a bed for someone in need.

Read our event information sheet here.

In person event: Adults – £10 /  Young people – £5   / Teams (up to six team members) – £40

‘Virtual’ event: (take part at home or at your place of work etc.) Adult – £5  /  Household – £10 (up to two adults and three children)

To take part, pick your chosen registration option in our online shop and we will then get in touch with the information you need (please choose the ‘pick up from Charity Link office’ option at checkout in the shop so a postage fee is not added).

If you have any questions or would like to pay for your registration fee in another way, please email rachel.markham@charity-link.org

Please note all young people must take part with an adult / carer.

"It’s fantastic to see all the ways the community comes together to improve the lives of people in need. From undertaking challenges, to dress-up days, quizzes, raffles and cake-bakes, to donating, setting up a regular gift, volunteering or spreading the word, it all helps to ensure people living in hardship are warm, safe and fed and have the basics in life that we all deserve."
