Event description

Description

The inaugural Evolve Sleep Out, sponsored by Croydon BID, will be held at Croydon Boxpark on 24 March 2019.


1 night sleeping out to help end homelessness

The mission? To brave the night-time elements and cold, hard floor and raise funds to help homeless people off the streets and into positive, independent lives.

Sponsorship target: suggested £175 minimum p.p

We know one night in the cold will go nowhere near towards reflecting the harsh realities of rough sleeping, but it will be a fraction of a glimpse into how hard such a life can be.

By taking part, you are physically doing something to raise awareness of the issue and most, most crucially, raising vital funds so together, we can help more people off the streets and into positive independence.


The details:

Registration will open at 9.30pm in the Boxpark bar. There will be a talk from Evolve and one of our beneficiaries, who have had lived experience of sleeping rough, to inspire and remind you of the reasons behind the event, and thank you for taking action against homelessness. We'll then take camp in the main Boxpark area at 11pm.

6.30am: a 'thank you' breakfast will be at the ready for a team photo of all you incredible people who have taken action and actively helped to support homeless people.

7am: time to head home or to work, happy that we have that option


Sincere thanks to Croydon BID and Boxpark for taking an active stance in the fight against homelessness, by sponsoring the event and providing the space. Without both, this important event would not have been possible.

And major thanks to you for braving the night, so others don't have to.

FAQs

What can/can’t I bring into the event?

Please definitely do bring a warm sleeping bag, lots and lots of warm clothes and winter woollies, and something like a yoga or camping mat or piece of cardboard to sleep on to give you that added bit of insulation. (It will make a big difference- we promise!) No bedding will be provided. There will be security at the event, however, we’d encourage you to not bring valuables.

No drugs or alcohol will be permitted into the venue.

Refreshments

Warm drinks and water will be available throughout the event and there will be a thank you breakfast bap and tea/coffee ready to mark your efforts when the sun comes up. However, if you have dietary requirements or any other specialised needs, we recommend you bring what you need with you.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

As long as you have your event confirmation on your phone that will be perfect. We just need to confirm you have officially signed up for the event and are ready to go.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No ID is required to attend the event- just have your event confirmation details at the ready.

There is an age limit of 16. Anyone between 16- 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

There is no upper age limit we just advise, anyone over 65+ should seek advice from a medical practitioner before taking part. Any questions please contact siobhan.doyle@evolvehousing.org.uk.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Your best bet would be to arrive by public transport. Boxpark is located directly next to East Croydon station which is a hub that connects to mainlines across London. (20 mins from Victoria and London Bridge.)

If you are driving there are NCP car parks which are 24 hours within a ten minute walk of the venue, but please bear in mind you may be very tired the next day, so please ensure you are safe to drive in the morning.

Can I update my registration information?

No problem, we just ask you do so at least 3 days before the event. Either contact us direct or via Eventbrite.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

If you are unable to attend and want to pass over your place we are happy for you to do so- just let us know and make sure the new participant is game to raise their £175 sponsorship and knows what the event will entail.

Can I get help with my fundraising?

Absolutely! We have a fundraising pack with loads of ideas of how to smash that £175 target. Get in touch and we will fire it over to you. If you need more help- please just shout! Let’s do this! fundraising@evolvehousing.org.uk

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can email us via fundraising@evolvehousing.org.uk or call 020 7101 9960. You can also find us on all the usual social places @EvolveLDN and we will happily answer your questions there too!
