Are you and your colleagues up for a challenge in 2018?

10th January 2018

Why not get a team together and join our Sleep Out 2018 on Friday 16 March and help raise vital funds for St Wilfrid's Centre.

Our Sleep Out 2018 challenges you to get out of your comfort zone and sleep on the floor of the Abbeydale Picture House, a former cinema turned community arts venue which is now nearly 100 years old. It's the first time this iconic Sheffield landmark has ever been used for a sleep out fundraiser. We are looking for teams or individuals to join us for the night! In return for raising a minimum of £50 in sponsorship per person, you will be treated to an evening of live music and drama, including a showcase performance by some of the charity's own clients. You are welcome to bring your family or friends along to this part of the night, with tickets sold separately from 29th January via our website and Then, whether taking part on your own or with colleagues, you'll be provided with a light supper before grabbing a spot on the Picture House floor and bedding down for the night. The next day, we'll provide you with a light breakfast and even put on a gentle yoga class to loosen your limbs, before sending you on your way. What to do next: To join us register online via our website. The registration fee is £15 pp (includes entertainment, light supper and breakfast) then get going and start raising your £50 pp min sponsorship. Places for the Sleep Out are limited so be sure to register soon. We would love it if you'd like to bring along a team from your company, experience something new, support our work and take on our challenge! If you'd like more information about the event or to discuss how your company might be able to support the event in other ways, please do get in touch: Want to know more about the event? Visit
