Not all our events raise funds, some celebrate young people’s achievements

Events

From running the London Marathon to a more social occasion, we’d love to see you at one of our events.

 

Thursday 9th November – The Eden Project. 

Your chance to help End Youth Homelessness! Sleepout 2017

You can help raise money for Amber as for the fourth year running, The Eden Project is hosting a Sleep Out event beside the beautiful Biomes in the Cornish countryside.

A unique experience  – giving you a flavour of what it is like to have to Sleepout ……. but with the added bonus of music, food, fire, fun, bread baking and soup making.

Most importantly it will give you the opportunity to find out more about youth homelessness and the work of Amber and St Petrocs.

By fundraising for these charities you will also be helping to End Youth Homelessness.

The date for your diaries is Thursday 9 November 2017!

Your chance to help End Youth Homelessness! Sleepout 2017

Get involved

Would you be willing to swap your bed for a sleeping bag and cardboard mat for one night?

Sleep Out doesn’t aim to replicate homelessness, but it does show you some of the realities – the cold, the noise and the difficulty of carrying on your day with little sleep. It’s not easy – but we’ll tuck you in with a night of music, fun, food and good company before bedtime.

The event helps to raise awareness of the issues around homelessness but also raises valuable funding and support for local grassroots organisations who are taking direct action to support homeless people to get back on their feet and turn their lives around.

We’re asking participants to sign up (non-refundable £15 registration fee applicable) and to commit to fundraise as much as possible. As places are limited, we hope that participants will aim to raise at least £200.

You will be provided with a cardboard mat to lie on and a ‘Sleep Out Bag’ but please remember to bring a sleeping bag. You will be sleeping outside but there is cover overhead so that the event can take place whatever the weather.

When registering, you will have a choice of two local South West charities to fundraise for: St Petroc’s Society or Amber Foundation (EYH). We will be extremely grateful for any monies raised!
