Good luck Big City Sleepers!

Posted on the 15th March 2013

Tonight Street Child World Cup supporters will brave the elements to raise awareness for street children across the world at the Big City Sleep. The challenge: Can you handle one night on the streets? The Big City Sleep takes place at Spitalfields in East London and is in partnership with Action for Brazil’s Children Trust.

Please do come and support us from 6.30pm, the evening will include a samba display, an interactive forró dance class, a capoeira performance, skills from the Freestyling Football World Champion Andrew Henderson, vigilante theatre, an interactive art installation and much more!

Sleepers will then roll out their sleeping bags Viagra and try to sleep on the streets of London for a night. They will of course be in a safe environment, something which street children do not have, but the challenge of sleeping on the streets for the night will be a profound experience for our supporters.

Registration is still possible and costs £30 – to cover running costs – and then we encourage sleepers to raise a further £120 in sponsorship. Click here to register and set up your fundraising page or just come along for the evening.

Please contact lucy@streetchildunited.org for any extra information.
