YMCA Northumberland Sleep Easy
Why we need your help
A staple part of our fundraising since 2010, Sleep Easy has seen more than 7,000 people sleep rough to raise over £1.5m for local YMCA services that help young people rebuild their lives.
YMCAs are asking supporters to sleep out, so others don’t have to, by taking part in special Sleep Easy events all overEngland and Wales.
In ordinary times, this would have involved groups and individuals meeting at a YMCA, buildingcardboard shelters, sharing the evening outside and together experiencing the harsh realities of life on the streets.
The challenges of running an event like this during the current pandemic are many, however, they do not compare to thedifficulties that young homeless people are battling every single day.
For more than a decade the public have been sleeping out to raise money for YMCA and this year we are asking you to doso but with a twist. We’re asking the public to sleep on their sofas, floors or armchairs in their home, or if you are able to brace the weather in tents in your garden.
