Sleep Out 2022

"It helped me understand what it must feel like to be homeless"

The Sleep Out 2022 returns this year with a new location and new date! For the first time, we are sleeping on the West India Quay at Canary Wharf. We have chosen this more prominent location in a bid to raise awareness (and funds of course!) and we are excited to partnership with St. Peter’s Barge for the event.

We have also selected Friday 2nd December to coincide with the Christmas build up and The Big Give Christmas Challenge. This is a week-long match funding campaign where donations to charities are doubled. GrowTH has secured £2,100 in pledged donations. So, for every pound donated up to this amount, we are guaranteed a pound to match it!

Register here to take part and raise vital funds for our work. 

Details of the event:

START TIME

7pm on Friday 2nd December

END TIME

9am on Saturday 3rd December

LOCATION

St Peter’s Barge, West India Quay, Off Hertsmere Rd, London, E14 4AL

On arrival you will:

  • Register with the GrowTH staff team
  • Make your ‘bed’ using the cardboard and tape provided
  • Share a meal outdoors with other participants
  • Hear stories from guests who have experienced homelessness – this is a very powerful part of the evening
  • Bed down for the night and try and catch some winks!
  • Reflect and feedback your experiences over breakfast, before tidying your bed and leaving the event!

Participants can either set up their own fundraising pages, or simply send GrowTH’s Big Give Campaign link to friends and family to raise funds.

We hope you will join us and make this the most successful fundraising Sleep Out to date!

Feedback from participants of the Sleep Out 2021

Met some amazing people. Wonderful, inspirational stories.
Thank you GrowTH for giving me and my sons this priceless opportunity to experience and learn first hand the life faced by homeless people.
It made me feel humble. It made me realise how fortunate we are to have a roof over our heads.
The stories from the two previous homeless experiences painted clear pictures of the challenges and desperate help needed to tackle and overcome homelessness.
GrowTH is a vital bridge - Helping/caring/changing lives.
