BRAVE souls from across Torbay are being challenged to endure freezing Winter temperatures to sleep under the stars to raise money for young homeless people.
Staff at the YMCA South Devon’s newly launched Nightstop service, which provides emergency, temporary accommodation for young people, are hoping that dozens of people will bed down for the night on outdoor tennis courts to raise funds.
Called the Sleep Easy, YMCA’s across the country are challenging their local residents to sleep anywhere but their own beds for one night only on Friday, March 11th, but most of the efforts locally are being concentrated on a sleep out in Goodrington.
Nightstop launched in Torbay just before Christmas and has already helped two young people by placing them in a safe, caring environment in the home of trained volunteers until their needs could be assessed.
