Fundraisers Sleep Rough In Cheltenham

Around 70 people are sleeping rough in Cheltenham on Friday 6th March to raise money for the people that have to do it every night.

The 'Sleep Easy' is organised by Cheltenham YMCA. Last year it raised more than £11,000.

Fundraisers will be out from 7.30pm until 7.30am the following morning to raise awareness of youth homelessness and raise vital funds to support the charity's work in the local community. Participants are asked to brave the cold, sleep in a cardboard box for one night and get sponsored for their efforts in the third annual Sleep Easy.

The money raised will go straight to Cheltenham YMCA to help support young homeless people on the town's doorstep

You can find out more, and donate through the Cheltenham YMCA website, and here .
