Sleep Easy 21st April 2023
Friday the 21st April from 7pm to 7am on the 22nd of April.
Spend a night sleeping out to support Ripon YMCA.
Ripon businesses...can you support us?
Homelessness is often hidden on our society. Young people who have no fixed home will often find themselves sleeping at a friends house on a sofa or the floor.
In the past year we have seen young people staying in cars, sleeping on a kitchen floor and in a shed, with many more "sofa surfing".
The YMCA can help
We can give young people a safe place to stay and provide support to promote independence
By taking part in our sleep easy campaign you can raise money through sponsorship to stay out for 1 night. Sleep out with us or even on your sofa at home to raise money and awareness of young people and homelessness.
A group of like-minded volunteers will be spending the night together at our Sleep Easy site at Ripon Workhouse Museum. We will start at 7pm with a meal and briefing at the YMCA. Followed by games and activities.
Breakfast will be from 6am with the event finishing at 7am on the Saturday morning.
The event will be managed and run by the staff at Ripon YMCA. We will provide support to all registered participants through the night.
The Sleep out is for over 18's only, however if you are a young person under 18 and would like to fundraise you can sleep somewhere other than your bed for the night such as the sofa, the floor or have a sleepover.
