One night could make a lifetime of difference to a homeless young person

Could you leave the comfort of your own bed for one night and help us to support young people facing homelessness? Join us either virtually, or in-person on Friday, 21 October 2022 and sleep rough so others don’t have to!

Central Park, Dartford event

This year our event returns to Central Park in Dartford!  We will meet at 7.00pm for an evening of campfire fun, box decorating and other activities before settling down to “sleep” in a cardboard box. The campfire will be kept alight and there will be hot drinks available throughout as you experience a little of what it’s like to be outside for the whole night. The next morning we will pack up camp and return to YMCA Dartford for a hot breakfast.

Virtual event

Taking part virtually means that the whole family can get involved and you get to decide where to spend the night! will it be in your garden, the shed or even your bath? Schools, colleges and groups are also encouraged to take part and help us to make a real difference to vulnerable people locally.

We’ll send you a pack with everything you need to get started and our friends at YMCA HQ will be providing some live entertainment for virtual participants on the night!
