Milestone Sleep Out for Archer Project
5th September 2018
On September 14th it will be the 25th Sleep Out hosted by the Cathedral Archer Project to raise awareness and funds to support their work with homeless people in Sheffield.
For this special anniversary event The Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Magic Magid, will be participating. The Sleep Out is an opportunity to gain a small insight into sleeping rough, with everyone who takes part learning something new and experiencing what it is like to sleep on the streets for just one night. Since the first event in 2007 over 500 people have slept out along the sides of Sheffield Cathedral on cardboard, grass, and concrete. One past participant stated that -it [the Sleep Out] is the best way to get a glimpse of what it is like to be homeless, cold, and tired, and it really furthers your understanding of the difficulties this creates. If you would like to take part in this unique experience visit: https://s18sleep-out.eventbrite.co.uk. The event runs from 7pm on Friday 14th September to 7 am on Saturday 15th September and participants are asked to raise sponsorship money.
