Fundraiser created 5 months ago.
On the night of Friday 27th September 2019, I will be 'sleeping rough' as part of The Big Sleep 2019 - an organised mass sleep out to raise funds for the Seaview Project, Hastings, UK
The Seaview Project supports some of the most vulnerable people in Hastings and St Leonards, people whose challenges include rough sleeping, drug and alcohol addictions, mental health issues, long term physical health conditions, loneliness, unemployment, poverty and social isolation. Seaview open access wellbeing centre offers a range of services including, affordable meals, emergency food parcels, a free clothes store, free showers, haircuts and laundry facilities and access to a nurse and podiatrist.
"Rough sleeping in England has increased for the seventh consecutive year, official figures show, and charities say even this steep rise fails to capture the true level of street homelessness.......Statistics published by the government on Thursday reveal that an estimated 4,751 people bedded down outside overnight in 2017, up 15% on the previous year"
