Could you do it? Could you sleep outside in a cardboard box for one night to raise funds for an emergency winter shelter for the homeless in Slough?
Slough Sleepout for the Homeless 2019

We are pleased to announce the Slough Sleepout for the Homeless (SSH) on Saturday 23rd November at St Bernards School, Slough, to raise funds specifically to run the Night Shelter for 2020. This is an opportunity for everyone aged 16 or over to get involved, to support those who are less fortunate than ourselves by sleeping outside together, for one night in a cardboard box. The Sleepout will take place in a fully managed, secure environment and we will supply the cardboard box, refreshments and entertainment.
This event is critical to the success of the Slough Winter Night Shelter as it is our main event for raising the funds needed to run the night shelter every night from January to the end of March (typically the coldest months of the winter).
Thanks to our volunteers, Slough council and other bodies, the Slough Winter Night Shelter 2019 was open for three months and was used by 44 guests, 22 of whom went on to find accommodation and many have since found employment. We saw a range of guests use the shelter from entrenched rough sleepers to victims of domestic abuse and those who found themselves in need of help for a short time.
