Great Yarmouth Christians sleepout to help homeless 

28th February 2020
SLEEP OUT 02-2020

A group of Yarmouth Christians spent the night of Friday February 7 camped out in the open fronted porch of Great Yarmouth Minster as part of the Church Urban Fund’s Advent Sleepout Challenge.  Tony Rothe reports

Carol, Robin, Rev Simon, and James spent a very cold night outside in order to raise awareness of the situation for homeless people locally and to raise money for charities which help people on the streets
Carol Ling, who organised the sleepout, said "It was a challenge for me....  I know I would never survive sleeping on the streets, one night was hard"
The team has raised nearly £2000 in total, 80% of which will go to The Living Room winter night shelter which helps rough sleepers in Great Yarmouth, and 20% going to Church Urban Fund

There is still time to sponsor the team. Please click here
