The BIG Sleep - Salisbury Cathedral

The BIG Sleep - Salisbury Cathedral

04 Mar 2016 - 05 Mar 2016

In 2016 we will be celebrating  the 10th Birthday of Alabaré's Annual Sleep Out at Salisbury Cathedral.  To mark the occasion we are proud to announce the launch of...

The BIG Sleep 

We are asking our supporters across the country to support the BIG Sleep by attending an Alabaré event or by organising their own: 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.

Salisbury Cathedral - 4th March 2016

Once again we will be braving the cold and discomfort and spending a night in the cloisters of Salisbury Cathedral.  We had 106 people join us in 2015, raising over £12,000 in total to support Alabaré's Drop In Centres in Wiltshire.  Let's make our 10th Birthday the biggest ever!
