They are looking to recruit 400 people willing to brave the British weather and spend the night sleeping rough to raise money to fund homeless shelters in Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and Wandsworth.

Since 2012, when the first Sleep Out was held, over 900 people have spent the night on the streets and helped raise almost £600K for homeless shelters in London.

Steven Platts, Glass Door’s Chief Operating Officer, says Sleep Out has been key in helping Glass Door support more people off the street – “No one should have to sleep on the streets of London. The Sleep Out helps bring that goal closer to a reality.”

Glass Door aims to recruit 400 volunteers who will give up their beds on the night of 6 October 2017. There is no registration fee nor fundraising minimum, but the charity encourages participants to aim to raise around £500 in sponsorship.
