Southend YMCA is challenging you (if you are 18 or over) to join them on their Sleep Easy fund raising event. The event is to raise awareness of youth homelessness and also to support the crucial work that the YMCA does with vulnerable children and young people in Southend and surrounding areas.
Fundraisers on the Sleep Easy event will sleep outside overnight at the YMCA’s Ambleside Drive site on Saturday March 2nd 2013, from 7pm until 7am the following morning. In the morning fundraisers will be awarded with a bacon or egg roll.
Participants will brave the cold, sleep in a cardboard box for one night and fundraise via sponsorship for this Sleep Easy. You can sign up as an individual or go as a group, company or club.
Southend YMCA has toilets, a kitchen (for hot drinks throughout the night). Southend YMCA expect it to be a brilliant atmosphere with a fantastic community spirit. If the weather is terrible people who need to can retreat inside.
Sleep Easy 2013 will take place at: Southend YMCA, Newlands, 85 Ambleside Drive, Southend On Sea, Essex, SS1 2FY.
