Sleep Easy 2017
This event has taken place for this year, but don’t fear we will be holding this event again next year, so watch this space!
On Friday 3rd March 2017, a large group of people grabbed their sleeping bags and warm clothing and slept outside at the YMCA in Paignton to raise money and awareness for a worthy cause.
We were fortunate enough to have some lovely volunteer musicians who kindly joined us to keep spirits high, whilst we kept warm around the fire pit.
Although the weather was mainly dry and it wasn’t the coldest night, it was still a tricky challenge to complete and 40+ people completed it! Riviera FM joined us and helped promote this cause on their Friday evening show and the Herald Express kindly reported on this event. This was the first time YMCA South Devon has held this event and we raised over £7000!!! This was a great amount to raise for our first Sleep Easy and we look forward to increasing and improving on this next year.
If you want to raise awareness and raise funds to support homeless people in our area and get Friends and Family to sponsor you to sleep rough for a night to help this cause, please contact us to be put on our sign up sheet in preparation.
