The Sutton Coldfield YMCA 'Sleep Easy'

Friday 31st March 2017


Any one who can take part or help please take note


The YMCA Sleep Easy is a National fundraising event, intended to raise awareness of the issue of youth homelessness whilst raising vital funds to support individual YMCA’s work with young people in many different ways.


A Sleep Easy event is a sponsored sleep out in the open on one of the coldest nights of the year where participants have only a cardboard box for protection (and a sleeping bag for warmth if they’ve brought one!) It’s meant to be challenging but fun, as participants take the chance to support their local YMCA.


Following the fun and huge success of our Sleep Easy event in March 2015 and 2016, YMCA Sutton Coldfield will be undertaking the challenge again this year to raise vital funds to continue the important work our organisation is delivering. We are looking for individuals, families, businesses and schools to support us in this event, either by sponsoring a box, or by participating themselves. We are hoping to have over 100 participants this year, and we would love you to be part of the fun!

Hot food and drinks will be provided during the evening and there will be plenty of activities and games to keep you warm. We will even provide the cardboard boxes!


The Sutton Coldfield YMCA Sleep Easy will be taking place, on:


Friday 31st March 2017 from 7pm to 6am the next morning At Gracechurch Shopping Centre, Sutton Coldfield


Please consider participating or sponsoring us! If you have any questions or need any more information, don’t hesitate to contact me on 0121 354 5614. You can also find more information at
