Last year we had over 250 people from across Lancashire turned out to this amazing cause. Streetlife is a youth work charity whose aim is to assist vulnerable young people in the Blackpool area.
Due to the enormous generosity of the local people, Streetlife raised £41,000 from last year’s Big Sleepout, that’s £13k more than 2017’s event! This money has been used to provide emergency safe accommodation to homeless young people in our Night Shelter at St. Johns Walk in Blackpool town centre.
Due to the popularity of this event, we are holding the #BigSleepout19 over two consecutive nights with places limited to 150 participants per night. There is a £10 registration fee which includes a wristband, Streetlife travel mug and survival sack.
We ask all participants to commit to raising £100 in sponsorship. You can create your own online donations form through Just Giving by clicking on this link: www.justgiving.com/streetlife and click on the “fundraise for us” tab in the top right hand corner.
