Local government statistics show that homelessness is an issue in Solihull despite the general affluence of the area and that this situation is disproportionately affecting young people. We have a range of specific services tailored to the needs of young people but we want to do much more and that’s where those taking part in this event can help. It is free to take part, all we ask is that you try to raise as much money as possible through people sponsoring you so that we can do more and to make all your efforts worthwhile.
Creative Cardboard Competition
Because this event is covered it can pour down with rain and you won’t get wet. It also means you can really go-to-town on designing your ‘creative cardboard shelter’ with prizes for the best judged on the evening…it’ll be like a massive warehouse full of cardboard art houses…and there are prizes!
|First prize is a Family Ticket to Cadbury World, we also have a special trophy for the best entry from a school/college, so get your creative juices flowing.|

To do our bit for the planet and to try and save on financial waste we are not issuing plastic bags for this event because it is under cover.
After the event we will put photos of the event online and email you your Certificate of Achievement, (which is an event specific certificate that you to print off) and these will only be given to people who have taken part.
