The BIG Sleep at Salisbury Cathedral

The BIG Sleep is back!

Join us for Alabare's 11th Big Sleep at Salisbury Cathedral and help us to end homelessness.

About the BIG Sleep

The BIG Sleep is back! The annual fundraiser helped to raise over £26,500 for our Drop In Centre last year. The Centre provides; shelter, hot food, washing and laundry facilities as well as other everyday essentials (such as sleeping bags) to the homeless and vulnerable. We also provide emergency accommodation to rough sleepers in severe weather.

We believe that no one should be forced to sleep on the streets.

Who can get involved?

The event is open to anyone over 14 years old (if you are 14-18 you will need  parental consent). To cover admin costs there is a registration fee of £10 for adults and £5 for under-18s.

We welcome groups from schools, companies, uniformed groups, churches and community organisations. We are also happy to visit your group to introduce you to the charity and give you more information about the Big Sleep.

Can I run my own event?

If you are not able to join us on the night, or live too far away, you can still get involved in the BIG Sleep!  We are asking our supporters across the country to host their own BIG Sleep: outdoors, indoors, in a tent, at a church or hall or school... Join in this amazing community effort to help raise awareness of homelessness and raise much needed funds to support our work.  

Please get in touch if you would like advice on running your own event.
