A sleepout is a sponsored challenge for your group to build a shelter out of the materials provided and then sleep in it overnight!
We provide the cardboard and plastic sheeting, although, short of a tent or campervan lol, we are happy for you to bring whatever other materials you like! Especially if you are taking part in our optional 'Creative Cardboard Competition'.
This is very much a fundraiser, we are not trying to emulate rough sleeping in any way, although we know some people have found it a very poignant experience.
Although it is a challenge (and that's why we want your other friends and family to sponsor you too), it can also be great fun and we certainly don't want you to be miserable. Please wear plenty of warm layers and bring sleeping bags and extra blankets too.
Why take part in our Solihull Sleepout?
Our Solihull SleepOut is a very popular event and is often considered the Rolls Royce of all our SleepOuts as it takes place in a covered carpark so you do at least have some protection from the elements, although it is still cold.
At this years' Solihull Sleepout, by way of entertainment, we'll have:
- Free Indian food
- Creative Cardboard Competition (with prizes for the best cardboard dwelling)
- Short film screenings
Want to take part?
Please fill out the form on this page to register for free.
This event raises money for our services in Solihull which include two supported accommodation schemes for those who have becocme homeless and engagement services aimed at helping young people to re-skill and gain the confidencec needed to get back into education, work and training.
We also have a Youth Hub in Solihull, which assists young people who have housing issues before they reach crisis point.
In previous years we have had almost 200 people take part in the Solihull SleepOut raising in excess of £20,000!
Solihull Sleepout is sponsored by the Renewal Church, LangarAid and Smurfit Kappa.
