About

I am fundraising for YMCA Coventry and Warwickshire by taking part in Sleep Easy 2017. The event helps to raise awareness of rough sleeping & raise money for young, homeless people in the local area.

I am taking part to better understand what it is like to be out in the cold. The event raises awareness of youth homelessness & funds to support local young people in need.
 
I will be braving the cold for one night, sleeping in a cardboard box between 7pm on Friday 3rd March to 7am the next day. I will make my ‘bed’ for the night in the stadium at Coventry Rugby Club. 

YMCA Coventry and Warwickshire support local young people with accommodation, advice, guidance & training to help build a better future. Please support me by sponsoring what you can.

BT MyDonate is a free, not-for profit service. They don't charge their charities any fees beyond those charged by a donor’s debit/credit card company so on average they'll receive 63p more per £10 donation..

Sleep Easy 2017

YMCA Coventry and Warwickshire are holding our annual Sleep Easy’ fundraiser on Friday 3rd March 2017.

Through the event, the charity, which provides accommodation for 73 otherwise homeless young people, is looking to raise awareness of life on the streets by sleeping out for just one night.

Responding to the growing demand, YMCA is delighted to announce that Coventry Rugby Club have agreed to host the 2017 event free of charge.

Participants will sleep in a cardboard box at the event, from 7pm on Friday 3rd March to 7am the following day.

By making their ‘beds’ for the night within the stadium grounds, the intrepid band of fundraisers will help create positive futures for even more young people.

Well done Paul. A very worthy cause. Especially now that the government are cutting housing benefit for new young claimants.
