SLEEP OUT for Roundabout : Friday 24 November

Fancy a sleepover? This November we’re hosting Roundabout’s annual SLEEP OUT raising money to support young homeless people in Sheffield.

Brave a cold winter night and swap your bed for a sleeping bag on our warehouse floor to help raise thousands of pounds for vulnerable young people.

The SLEEP OUT kicks off at 8pm on Friday 24th November, hosted by Roundabout’s Patron, Paulette Edwards of BBC Radio Sheffield.

The first half of the evening will feature fun, food and entertainment… but from midnight the really tough challenge begins, as it’s lights down and into sleeping bags to catch some ‘zzz’s till morning, when you’ll be woken at 7am with tea and toast for breakfast.

 

Since they began 40 years ago, Roundabout have helped thousands of young people at risk of homelessness in our city by providing shelter, support and life skills to those aged 16-24.

“The Sleep Out is our flagship event and it’s crucial to allow us to continue to help vulnerable young people in Sheffield,” explains Ben Keegan, Roundabout’s Chief Executive.

“An event like this cannot truly replicate what it is like to be lonely, frightened and homeless, but it can help to make a real difference to those many young people who face challenges every day.”
