Our night under the stars

8 March 2017

A group of enthusiastic volunteers, from Integral, thought it would be a great idea to support the annual Big Bath Sleep-Out 2017 run by Julian House on the 1st Friday in March, to raise awareness and funds to help homeless people find a pathway out of rough sleeping.

Firstly we would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all those people and organisations who supported the event by sponsoring us and helping raise over £1000.

It was a thoroughly memorable event for all of the team. We feel happy to have taken part and experienced in such a small way the hardships faced everyday by people who, for a myriad of reasons, have found themselves without a caring, supportive, secure, home environment that most of us take for granted. Personally it has helped me have a better appreciation of how hard it is for rough sleepers to find the energy and resources to break out of their downward spiral. They are not invisible.

And we did see stars despite the rain clouds, bonus!
