What is Sleep Easy?
It’s our first annual sponsored sleep out. It’s a great chance for people to come together to raise awareness of homelessness and funds to support YMCA Essex’s work with vulnerable young people.
Participants brave the cold, sleep in a cardboard shelter for one night and get sponsored for their efforts.
For business groups, Sleep Easy is not only a challenging and eye opening experience but an opportunity to have fun, build your team and meet some of your corporate targets, so why not get involved.
This is the first year that YMCA Essex has taken up this challenge. We hope, that with your help, we can raise as much as we can and help highlight this important topic.
When is Sleep Easy?
Our event will take place at 7pm on Friday 8th March 2019 and the event will conclude at 7am on Saturday 9th March 2019.
