On Friday 23rd March, Colchester United's Football in the Community team will be holding their first Sleep Out fundraising event.
The event will run from 7:30pm to 8am the following morning, sleeping in the concourses of the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
The event will be raising funds for Colchester United FITC Disability Sports Programmes due to be launched in April 2018 and Colchester Rough Sleepers Group, a local homelessness charity.
The £10 cost of the ticket (click HERE to book your spot) will be used to cover a bacon sandwich and tea or coffee on the morning of the event and will also be put towards fundraising for the charities.
We would like to make this experience as authentic as possible and therefore ask participants to bring no more than a sleeping bag or cover and a pillow.
Drinks and snacks are permitted, however alcoholic beverages are prohibited.
We ask for people to fundraise as an individual for this event, with a minimum of £150 to be raised per person. This amount must be raised prior to the event.
We also have our own JustGiving Page where you can fundraise specifically for the event:
