Sleep Out so other’s can Sleep In! Come and join us on our Charity Sleep Out 2019.
December 2019 is Nightsafe’s 29th Anniversary. We opened the doors to our first homeless young person in December 1990 and have been going ever since, with the need for our services increasing all the time!
Since 1990, Nightsafe has;
- Helped 14,500 young people
- Given 42,257 nights off the street
- Provided 145,000 meals
- Had 785 dedicated volunteers
To celebrate our anniversary, we are holding a sleep-out to highlight the plight of homeless young people and raise much needed funds for Nightsafe’s Youth Homelessness Projects.
The event will take place on Friday 6th December 2019 at Saint Silas Parish Church Grounds, Preston New Road, Blackburn, BB2 6PS from 9pm to 6am the following morning.
If you would like to join us and collect sponsorship for Nightsafe, please download and complete the forms and return to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off at Nightsafe@The Boulevard Centre, 45 Railway Road, Blackburn, BB1 1EZ.
Any youth groups wishing to join the sleep-out must have designated leaders with necessary permissions and consent forms. We ask for a staffing ratio of 1 adult per 4 under 18 year olds. We advise a minimum age of 10 years old and no dogs please.
Individuals wishing to join the event should be 18 or over unless accompanied by a responsible adult.
We provide sponsor forms or you could set up a just giving web page for friends and family to make online donations, full details on how to do this on www.justgiving.com/night-safe. This can make life simpler for you as you can share your request via social media pages and these get sent straight to us, so no having to pursue people to hand over their cash! But of course there is still the good old sponsor form which is also available to download.
Breakfast will be provided for those joining us on the night at 6am, as well as refreshments on the night.
We hope you enjoy your night with us and we thank you for your support. Our last event in 2017 had 105 people join us and we raised over £20k! We hope to beat those figures this year and need your help to do that!
