The Big Sleep 2019 Fundraising Total!

Posted by mn251 at Mar 29, 2019 09:25 AM |
We’re pleased to announce that the Big Sleep 2019 was a HUGE success!

As you may be aware, last week the University worked with local charity The Bridge: Homelessness to Hope and the student group Homeless Outreach Society to co-ordinate The Big Sleep 2019.

It was a night where students and staff gathered under the stars to sleep out on Centenary Square. It in no way compares to the reality of sleeping rough but helped to raise awareness of the challenges that Leicester's homeless population face every day of their lives.

This year we had 79 participants - almost double that of last year - and raised over £15,000! This figure is expected to increase as donations are still being taken.

ITV News reporters visited campus to cover the event.

We wish to send our thanks to everybody who took part, raised awareness or donated.
