Big Bath Sleep-Out 2020
Join us for the 11th Big Bath Sleep Out! Friday 6th March 2020. Stand up against homelessness by challenging yourself, friends, family and colleagues to sleep out for one night and help raise vital funds and awareness for those forced to do so every night. The Big Bath Sleep-Out is one of our most important events in the calendar and holds a special place in many people’s hearts. Over the years we’ve welcomed hundreds of people to the event, all ditching their beds in unison for one night to raise vital funds and to make an incredible difference to those forced to sleep out every night. Giving up just one night really could transform the lives of others. In 2019 we welcomed over 300 people who together helped raise an incredible £52,000. Our 2020 Sleep-Out is set to beat that record, but only with your help. No one is under any illusion that spending one night under the stars could possibly replicate what it is like to be homeless and on the streets. After the Big Bath Sleep-Out you can go home, have a warm bath, have a nice breakfast and chat to family or friends about your experience, perhaps even go back to bed to catch up on the sleep you lost the night before. By being sponsored to sleep out for just one night you will be helping others who don’t have the luxury of their own home to return to. You can enter as an individual, or with friends and family, or a team from work, school or another organisation. (Under 16′s must be accompanied by an adult at all times). We do not charge an entry fee but hope that you will try and raise at least £100 so that we can continue to provide vital support to homeless and marginalised men and women in and around Bath. You will be amazed at how many people will be willing to sponsor you. FAQs Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? You must pre-register to take part in the event.
