MK Winter Night Shelter Big Sleep out is back – 29 April 2022

Winter Night Shelter Big Sleep Out is back!

Winter Night Shelter Big Sleep Out April 2022 fund raising event is back

Winter Night Shelter’s Big Sleep Out event is back and this time the event is for children as well as as adults, and will take place in the secure surroundings of one of their amazing corporate supporters, Cranswick Foods.

Will you join them and be asking your family and friends to sponsor you to sleep rough for a night so that others don’t have to?

Winter Night Shelter have been at the front line of helping people in need throughout the pandemic and their work to meet the need continues to grow. Over the last 12 months their welfare team have had a record caseload and they have helped around 200 people each week accessing support services at Unity Park Station, their day centre in the old bus station. The Winter Night Shelter is now gearing up for what looks to be their busiest summer yet so the funds they can raise from events like this will enable them to continue to help those who have nowhere else to turn.
