The Schools Trophy is back up for grabs, is your school up to the challenge?!
Our Really Big South Essex Sleep Out 2021 will be taking place around 9th October 2021 to mark World Homeless Day. This is a fun-packed way for children in the local area to learn about a growing issue in our community, raise much-needed funds for those less fortunate, and have a great time whilst doing so!
This year, we are again inviting schools to take part in the event and try to get their hands on the trophy!
St Helen's Catholic Primary School retained the crown in 2020. Who will win it this year?
As well as learning about some of the hardships that local homeless people face through special HARP assemblies, St Helen's over the last 2 years has raised over £2,500 – an incredible amount that makes a huge difference to our work.
At HARP, we believe that everyone should have a place to call their own and that no one should be sleeping on the streets in this day and age.
We provide a comprehensive service to help single homeless people get back on their feet and integrate back into the community. The money raised through The Really Big South Essex Sleep Out will go towards helping local homeless people in Southend and the surrounding areas.
If you feel that this is something your whole school community would like to become involved with, or maybe some of your pupils might like to host their own event with their families, then please get in touch with our team for more information or to book in a Sleep Out information assembly.
