Could you spend a night sleeping outside in November? Help raise awareness and funds to support the tens of thousands of young people who experience homelessness in the UK every year.
For the last eight years the Eden Project has hosted an annual Sleep Out outside the Biomes, raising thousands of pounds for homelessness charities St Petrocs and the Amber Foundation.
Last year, around 75 participants took part on a chilly night at Eden and raised £14,000 for the two charities. The Sleep Out will be back this year on the 10th November and hopes to raise another brilliant amount for the charities.
On the night, participants are invited to ‘sleep rough’ underneath the canopy of the Link Building between our Biomes to get a feel for what it's like to be a rough sleeper - if only for one night.
Attendees can expect entertainment such as a reading from local author Raynor Winn, or music from a local artist. There will be hot dinner with the option to make it yourself in cookery workshops, breakfast and unlimited teas and coffees available throughout. We only ask that you bring your own sleeping bag.
