Support the Street Child World Cup at our sponsored sleepout

Posted on the 10th January 2018

There are an estimated 150 million children surviving on the streets around the world who need your love, your respect and your help to ensure they are seen and their voices heard. 

This February we have an opportunity for you to show your support for street-connected young people and the Street Child World Cup Moscow 2018. With the Cambridge United Community Trust and Jimmy’s Cambridge we’re hosting a sponsored sleepout at the Abbey Stadium, in Cambridge, on Friday 23 February.

You can donate to the people taking part in the sleepout on this JustGiving page.

As a charity founded in Cambridge we have a special relationship with the city. We’re delighted that the people of Cambridge want to demonstrate their compassion by taking part in this sleepout. By supporting the Street Child World Cup, Cambridge is showing the world that it cares for the most vulnerable people living across the world.

Street Child World Cup Moscow 2018

This May, with the world watching, we will use the power of football to give street children a voice.

With the support of the money raised at the Cambridge sleepout, we will bring 24 national teams of street-connected children together in Moscow. They will be united by one goal – to inspire their countries to see and treat all children, no matter their background, with love and respect, so they can be protected, supported and gain access to the opportunities they need to build a life away from the streets.

There is no participation fee for the sleepout and participants will be asked to raise £100 each. If you’d like to take part in the sleepout, please email
