The aim is simple – SLEEP ROUGH SO OTHERS DON’T HAVE TO.
On Friday 3rd March 2023, we are holding the YMCA Cheltenham Sleep Easy – now in its 10th year!
Why is there a registration fee?
We ask each participant to pay a £10 registration fee. This covers the administration and delivery costs of the event ensuring that every pound you raise through sponsorship goes directly to our work with the homeless.
