Windsor Homeless Project's
WHP’s Annual Sleep Out is Back!
Will you sleep out on October 15th in aid of Windsor’s homeless and most vulnerable people?
Join us on 15th October, as we sleep out under the stars, in our sleeping bags and cardboard boxes, at Windsor College.
The Sleep Out is Windsor Homeless Project's biggest fundraiser of the year. The funds we raise every year mean we’re able to be here, when we’re needed, enabling homeless and vulnerable people in our local community to rebuild their lives.
What is the WHP Sleep Out?
The WHP Sleep Out is an annual fundraising challenge, where people in our community come together to raise funds and awareness for Windsor’s homelessness charity.
We won’t fully experience what it is like to sleep rough, but it does open our eyes to the experience that so many people in our community and around the UK find themselves in every day.
As always, it will be an evening of education, entertainment, food, and testimonials, all before we bed down for a night in the elements.
We would love for you, your friends, and your family to join us. Will you help to make 2021’s Sleep Out our biggest and best yet?
Where is WHP’s 2021 Sleep Out? Can I Sleep Out at home?
This year, we wanted to bring the community back to experience our Sleep Out together. Our main event will take place at Windsor College - just over the road from WHP’s home. But we know that some of our supporters would prefer to Sleep Out at home instead. We’d love for you to take part in any way you can.
How much do I need to fundraise?
We want to get everyone involved this year – which means we aren’t setting a fundraising target. When you sign up, we’ll ask you to set your own target for what you hope to raise or donate. Every penny counts!
How can my fundraising help?
£10 - Advice for a person experiencing or facing homelessness, or other difficulties, at our drop-in centre
£50 – Three phones with credit – allowing guests to keep crucial appointments with their support teams, such as the local council, the Drug and Alcohol service, or NHS services
£75 – A week of hot lunches for all our guests at our drop-in centre
£150 – A move for a guest into a new home – including all the basics needed to make a house a home
£300 – Nine hours of counselling, for one guest to begin to work through past life-events and traumas that have brought them to where they are today
In these uncertain times, we'll be needed more than ever to enable homeless and vulnerable people to rebuild their lives.
Here's how to take part:
Now you're ready to start fundraising! It's easy to set up your fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving.
And then share, share, share to all your friends, family & fans.
We raised over £25,000 last year! Can you help us beat that this year?
If you're not able to Sleep Out, you can still support everyone taking part by donating to the page.
Come down to Windsor College for an evening of entertainment, food, education and testimonies, before settling down for a night in the elements.
