10th Big Bath Sleep-Out launches

Are you seeking to challenge yourself this year? Are you looking for something you can get your friends involved in? Then sign up to Julian House’s 10th Big Bath Sleep-Out.

We’re challenging you, your family, friends and work colleagues to ditch the comfort of your bed and sleep out for just one night under the stars, on Friday 8 March 2019. In doing so, you’ll help raise vital funds and make an incredible difference to those forced to sleep out every night.

Giving up just one night really could transform the lives of others.

So get your family, friends and work colleagues together and join us and hundreds of others on Friday 8th March 2019 in Alice Park for the 10th Big Bath Sleep-Out.

Event organiser, Cathy Adcock, says: “Of course, no-one is under any illusion that spending one cold night in Alice Park could possibly come close to the stark reality of being homeless and sleeping on the streets. People taking part in the Big Bath Sleep-Out may be cold and a little wet – one year we even had snow! However, the next morning people taking part can go home, have a warm bath, a cooked breakfast, chat to family and friends about their experience or just catch up on lost sleep. The big difference for people who are forced to sleep rough is that they don’t have that option.

The event has proven popular with: families; groups of friends and work colleagues; and children as young as four taking part. We’ve also welcomed large teams from Scout and Guide groups, organisations and companies – who’ve rallied together to take on the challenge. Supporting the Sleep-Out gives members of the public the chance to empathise with those who are forced to sleep on the streets and raise sponsorship to help Julian House support them – not just changing lives – but often saving lives.”
