The Pirelli Stadium



Over 300 people have bravely slept out all night to raise vital funds and awareness of homelessness in the area.  Last year the night was wet and windy but the severe weather warning and nothing more than a cardboard box to protect you didn’t put you off – in fact some of you complained … It was for softies!!

sleepoutWould you be prepared to do it … would you bring a team???

Friday 8th November 2013

Alongside the usual Sleepout in the stands at Burton Albion Football Club (Pirelli Stadium) we will be taking volunteers to an Xtreme location in the town to experience what rough sleeping is really like!

The event does not re-create homelessness, it’s not even a tough physical challenge and we are not expecting you to take risks with your personal safety.  We are not even attempting to match the sense of danger, hopelessness and hunger which afflicts many homeless people.  We are simply asking you to put yourself through some discomfort and raise vital funds for Burton YMCA … and imagine how comfy your bed will feel afterwards!

To enter as an individual sleeper please raise or donate a minimum of £100

For a team of four or more sleepers please raise or donate a minimum of £80 per sleeper

A £10 registration fee will secure your place and we will provide

·        a safe and secure venue with free parking

·        a cardboard box

·        A mug of hot soup around midnight and a breakfast bap at 6am

·        Best fundraiser prize

·        An opportunity to “earn” extra cardboard or maybe even some bubble wrap!

·        An opportunity to make a difference to homeless people in your area.
