- Sleep Easy
14th March 2020 - 15th March 2020
7:00 pm - 7:00 am
Last year only 1 in 4 homeless young people in Exeter were successfully housed in safe and warm one bed accommodation due to a significant lack of housing being available.*
We need to do more.
Sleep Easy is YMCA Exeter’s annual sponsored sleep-out that raises thousands of pounds in order for us to continue providing, building and maintaining clean and safe supported accommodation for homeless young people.
2020 marks the 10th year of Sleep Easy and since 2011 YMCA Exeter has been able to provide ongoing housing support to over 1000 young people, empowering them to experience fullness of life in body, mind and spirit.
We will have a marquee, a firepit and picnic benches on the carpark, creating a central communal area and everyone can choose their personal spot on the pavement for the night. We will have all sorts of activities going on throughout the evening including survival challenges, a Q&A about homelessness and a late night movie showing. Follow us on social media for updates as we announce them, you will find us using @YMCAExeter.
Get sponsored, help us raise our goal of £25,000 and sleep rough so others don’t have to.
