YMCA Derbyshire Sleep Easy 2018

YMCA Derbyshire’s 2018 Sleep Easy event is taking place on Friday 9 March. Will you sleep rough so that others don’t have to?

The aim is simple: spend a night challenging yourself to sleep rough, raising money to help change the lives of vulnerable young people. All the money you raise goes directly to YMCA Derbyshire projects, impacting your community and helping disadvantaged young and vulnerable people in Derby and Derbyshire to build a future. Last year, with your help, we raised a staggering £37,000!

All the money raised from YMCA Derbyshire's Sleep Easy event goes towards the Safe Front Door Campaign. This campaign enables YMCA Derbyshire to continue providing safe accommodation, opportunities for young people to engage in positive activities, work experience and volunteer opportunities and gain business mentors.

As a result of 115 people sleeping rough last year, YMCA Derbyshire has provided 151 beds each night, accommodated 317 people and continued to support residents and young people in need of their services, rebuild their lives and help eliminate youth homelessness.

Let's see what we can achieve this year as a result of Sleep Easy! Thank You!
