The Really Big South Essex Sleep Out is back!
Last year’s Really Big South Essex Sleep In raised over £8,000 for Southend’s homeless charity, HARP, to support local people taking steps to overcome homelessness for good.
This year, The Really Big South Essex Sleep Out is back and we want it to be even bigger and better than last year.
You can help by taking part!
For one night, we want you to sleep out in unison, to display solidarity and support of those experiencing homelessness and displacement. We only have to sleep out for one night, for others it’s life.
Please click to donate and help raise vital funds for local vulnerable people in and around Southend - who have no other choice but to sleep out every night.
You can choose to just give up your bed for the night and sleep on the floor, build a den in your lounge or bedroom, or you could brave the elements in your back garden with just a sleeping bag. Why not get all the family involved and get the tent out and camp together?
Either way, make a night of it and raise money for local homeless people as you sleep! And if you're a local school, you can still benefit from a special Sleep Out Assembly (online or offline), before taking part in the event.
Don't forget, The Really Big South Essex Sleep Out is a very important fundraising event, and every £10 raised helps us to get someone off the streets for two nights - someone like Jack.
HARP, based in Southend, is a charity that believes everyone should have a place to call their own, and that no one should be sleeping on the streets.
We provide a comprehensive service to help single homeless people get back on their feet and live independently in the community.
The money you raise through your Sleep Out will go towards helping local homeless people in Southend and the surrounding areas.
