YMCA Sutton Coldfield Sleep Easy Challenge sponsored by PLOTT Creative
We challenge you to sleep rough so others don’t have to!
Join in, spend a night out and help us beat youth homelessness.
On Friday 27th March 2020, we will be sleeping out overnight at the Gracechurch Centre in Sutton Coldfield from 7pm – 7am to raise awareness and money to prevent youth homelessness.
Get a group together; grab your friends, family or colleagues and take up the challenge of a night in a cardboard box! Join us for this fantastic community event in a great atmosphere with music, entertainment and food and raise money for local children and young people’s charity YMCA Sutton Coldfield.
Last year, we raised an amazing £13k! This year, we’d love to smash that figure and exceed £20k. But to do this, we need your help!
