Local charity Horsham Matters have announced that they are running a ‘big event to raise awareness and money for the upcoming winter Night Shelter’.
The charity raises money, via its superstore and a market stall, to support people in the community through the local Foodbanks, running a winter Night Shelter for homeless people of the District and provision of help for those experiencing fuel poverty (gas and electric), amongst other activities.
The ‘Horsham Matters Big Sleep Out’ will take place on Saturday 7 September, beginning at 7.30pm and running for 12 hours, and will take place in the grounds of New Barn School, Broadbridge Heath. It’s a sponsored challenge, where people swap the luxury of a home and comfy bed and sleep in a cardboard box for the night, to gain insight into some of the things you might face, homeless on the street, while raising money for the Horsham Night Shelter starting 1 December 2019. Along with a VIP visitor at the event, there will be activities and entertainment in the evening and breakfast provided in the morning.
