Eden Project: Bodelva, St Austell, United Kingdom
Register now for the Eden Sleep Out, taking place this year on Thursday 15th November 2018.
Sleep Out doesn’t aim to replicate homelessness, but it does show you some of the realities – the cold, the damp, 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, 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 ask that participants 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.
Would you be willing to swap your bed for a sleeping bag and cardboard mat to spend a night sleeping outside for one night? You, your friends and your colleagues can be a part of it!
Arrival is from 6pm with activities and entertainment commencing from 7pm.
You are welcome to park in the Apple car parks (disabled parking) as Eden will be closed to the public during this event.
Make your way down to the Visitor Centre and then down to the bottom of the site and head for the Link building between the two biomes.
There will be a selection of activities to join in with throughout the evening as well as hot food, and hot drinks to keep you warm. You will be able to hear talks and stories from representatives from each of the charities we will be supporting.
Further details of the evening’s programme will be released in the coming months.
Please wear warm clothes and bring a sleeping bag, a hat and gloves are also reccommended for extra warmth.
