The BIG Sleep Salisbury Cathedral

The BIG Sleep Salisbury Cathedral

04 Mar 2022 - 05 Mar 2022

It's back and in person! The Big Sleep welcomes those who want to take a stand against homelessness at a time when every penny counts.

For 14 years Alabaré has welcomed those who want to take a stand against homelessness to the Salisbury Cathedral. While so many see the effects of the pandemic as being behind us, sadly for many, it will have been the start of their journey towards losing their home, their safety and mental health - and to becoming homeless.

We are therefore so pleased to be able to invite you to join us for our 14th Big Sleep at Salisbury Cathedral Cloisters. We are delighted that you are willing to give up your warm beds for the night and sleep on the cold stone floor of the cloisters while raising vital funds and awareness for Alabaré's work with homeless and vulnerable people in Wiltshire.  This is a thought-provoking, community event that promises to be bone-chilling, humbling, yet powerful.

Participants pledge to raise a minimum of £100 (or £50 for children aged 14-18) for Alabaré and the Somewhere to Go Salisbury Drop-in Centre. 

On signing up, each participant will receive an electronic Welcome Pack containing a full kit list, sponsorship form and key information for the night.


Participants will be fundraising for local homeless charity Alabaré. The funds raised will specifically go towards the cost of running the Somewhere to Go Drop-in Project that provides hot meals and emergency shelter to 110 rough sleepers during severe weather and the first step towards coming off the street for good.

Your fundraising will make a huge difference to homeless people in Wiltshire who have nowhere else to turn.

Together, we can end homelessness.
