YMCA Sleep Easy 2019
What is Sleep Easy? Sleep Easy is YMCA’s staple fundraising event which aims to raise money to help prevent youth homelessness. By participating in this event and sleeping outside, you will experience one night of what a young homeless person experiences every day.
Why should you participate? Milton Keynes has been named the homeless youth capital of the UK in a recent article published by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism. Many of the young people that come to us are vulnerable, socially isolated and in desperate need of a safe place to stay.
The funds raised will go towards our new campus that’s due to open in September 2019. This will be a community hub for local young people and will provide accommodation, well-being and support services to help them belong, contribute and thrive.
Registration fee The registration fee is £5 per person. This covers the cost of refreshments throughout the night and a cardboard box to sleep in.
How do you start fundraising? Once you’ve registered, we will email you a fundraising pack with tips to support your fundraising.
