Could you sleep rough for just one night? 

Gloucestershire is a great county in which to live and work, yet every year, hundreds of people end up sleeping on the streets because they have nowhere else to go. This should not be happening in 2020!

They say we are all just 2 pay packets away from homelessness.

In aid of World Homeless Day, we at CCP are inviting CEOs, MDs and other significant members of the community to sleep outside for one night on Wednesday 7th October. The aim is to raise awareness of issues around homelessness and the support available to those affected in our county. 

We guarantee that you will have an experience that will open your eyes to the challenges of rough sleeping.

We would like the experience to reflect what it is like for those that find themselves homeless and ask participants to bring just what will fit into a regular sized plastic carrier bag and we will provide participants with cardboard for sleeping on. However, you will be in the secure environment of Cheltenham Racecourse and receive a hot meal before bedding down for the night. It is also a great opportunity for key members of the local and business community to network in a less formal setting. 

The money raised will help CCP tackle the causes and effects of homelessness.

We challenge each participants to raise £1000 in sponsorship and donations for our cause. Don't worry, our Events Team will be on hand with lots of tips and advice on how to raise this and more. The money raised will be spent on CCP's work:

  • Reaching out to rough sleepers
  • Providing supported housing for 16 – 25 year olds who would otherwise be homeless
  • Debt, housing and benefit advice for those on the brink of homelessness
  • Helping to strengthen families who are facing difficulties
  • Emergency Food Parcels & Pantry Project for those living in poverty
