ABC Trust: Big City Sleep

On Friday 28 October the ABC Trust challenge you to a Big City Sleep. Action for Brazil’s Children Trust is a stellar UK based charity dedicated to helping the most vulnerable children and young people of Brazil. Through raising awareness and funding they work with projects in Brazil that help make education and inspiration available to those who really need it.

The Big City Sleep is about raising awareness and should also be a jolly fun night – all for a good cause. So get some mates together, get sponsored and get involved!

Some entertainment going down as we… art workshops // samba dance classes // capoeira performances // whole lot of oolala

THE CHALLENGE?
A 12 hour sleep-out challenge with a fundraising target of £150 (or more, of course!) for each sleeper. The sleeping area is within a secure and privately owned space which will be covered by security guards throughout the night. On arrival, you will choose the spot where you wish to make your bed for the night (you may bring your own sleeping bag, blankets etc), and ABC will also issue you with discount meal vouchers for a restaurant on the Spitalfields Estate to make sure you don’t go hungry. A programme of Brazilian entertainment will make for a peaceful (hopefully!) night’s sleep, before a nice and early wake-up call which will be accompanied by a spot of light breakfast. Once the site is cleaned up, sleepers can get on their way back to their normal lives.

FUNDRAISING DETAILS
The Big City Sleep has a fundraising target of at least £150 per person which you can raise through individual sponsorship from friends, family, colleagues and neighbours. Once you have officially registered for the Big City Sleep you will receive a challenge pack which will include a full information booklet about the event, a comprehensive fundraising guide, sponsorship form and justgiving guide (your personal online fundraising page). The ABC Trust are also available to discuss, guide and help you reach your fundraising target leading up to the event.
