(previously known as survive the night)

This year we are changing from our usual Survive the Night to run the Big City Sleepout. We are looking to get as many people across the City sleeping out over the weekend that marks World Homeless Day (10th October). Funds raised will go to running the Winter Shelter.

We are looking for Companies, Churches, Schools, Individuals, Families, Organisations or anyone to sleep in their garden, school, church or at their workplace overnight and raise money for Gloucester City Mission. It can be sleeping in a tent or out in the open. We hope that participants can then raise £100 through sponsors.

We are also running a series of sleepouts across the city which you might want to join in with;

- We have teamed up with Gloucester City AFC to sleepout in the T-End in their brand new stadium New Meadow Park.

- We are also hosting a sleepout at the Eastgate Shopping Centre where you can either sleep in a shop doorway or we will have a safe and secure area outside as well.

-You can even join in with the Cloister Challenge run by HaVinG to sleep in the famous cloisters at Gloucester Cathedral.

These organised sleep outs will run on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th October.
