What does it involve?Give up a night of comfort to experience the issues raised by those that sleep on the streets of Leeds but in a safe & secure environment. We are asking for each participant to raise a minimum of £20 per person to donate to the cause. You will be sleeping on the grassed areas in front of the James Graham Building on The Acre.
There is 24/7 security on site as well as staff who will be staying awake for any issues that you may face during the challenge. We will also be providing plenty of hot drinks and soup to keep you fueled and we will also have a designated Safe & Warm Space on Campus if you need a break.
