As you take down the Christmas decorations, throw out the tree and put the tinsel (yes, all the tinsel) back into storage we’d like to cheer you up with some good news about the Advent Sleepout Challenge!
We’ve put together a short film of some Advent Sleepout Challenges and the wonderful people involved which you can watch here...
A snapshot of Advent 2015
Our Joint Ventures in the North East – Together Middlesbrough and Cleveland, Together Newcastle and Communities Together Durham – partnering with homeless charity DePaul, organised three separate sleepout challenges in:
We were so impressed by the young people of North Ormesby, Middlesbrough who raised almost £1,000 with a “onesie” day at the local primary school! The youth club also gave up their beds for the night and raised almost £800 in sponsorship!
Did you know that 10 million people are helped by church projects each year? Through your support for the Advent Sleepout Challenge, Church Urban Fund will be able to help churches set up social action projects and support even more people, transforming lives and communities through their vital work. Through this generous support we are able to work to transform lives and communities across England. People like Dave, who with the support of Church Urban Fund was able to put his life back on track.
Take the challenge in 2016
