For one night only – on Friday 9th October – local homeless charity Glass Door will host a Sleep Out event at Duke of York Square, where hundreds of people are expected to brave a night ‘under the stars’ (whatever the weather) to raise money for emergency accommodation in West London.
You are now able to sign up for the event at www.glassdoor.org.uk/sleepout2015.htm
Experience a small taste of some of the difficulties that so many people who are homeless in the Capital have to deal with – freezing cold, vulnerability, and the difficulty of carrying on your day with little sleep – and raise money for a very worthwhile cause at the same time.
This is the event’s third year. In 2014 it raised £140,000 – enough to fund a new winter shelter. Participants have described the event as inspiring and thought provoking.
