Together with the Whitechapel Centre, we're helping raise money to help vulnerable people across our area and you can get involved by spending one night sleeping in Liverpool Cathedral.
For the third time, we've joined forces with the Whitechapel Centre, Liverpool's leading homeless charity to create the Liverpool Cathedral Sleepout, a rare opportunity to sleep inside our Cathedral. Everyone needs to have a place to call home - a nice comfy bed, hot food to eat, somewhere you can watch television, play games or read a book. Unfortunately, not everyone in our city has this. While the Sleepout won't compare to sleeping outside on the streets, we want to help people understand how difficult it might be when you don’t have a place to go.
The Liverpool Cathedral Sleepout is a fun and friendly event open to people of all ages. It is set to be an unforgettable night, with storytelling, arts and crafts, as well as prizes for the best ‘den’ and best pyjamas. While there is lots of fun for those involved, an important message is behind the event. Many children and young people are concerned about the people they see sleeping on the streets and those that are less fortunate. The Sleepout offers children the opportunity to help and find out more about homelessness in the safety of Liverpool Cathedral.
The Whitechapel Centre helps those living without a home and we help people in the city through our charity Micah Liverpool. Together, we are working really hard to make sure everyone in Liverpool can have a place to call home and live to their full potential. Unfortunately, more and more people need our help each year.
We know many people want to help those they see sleeping on the streets or without a home but it can be difficult to know the best way to help. By taking part in the Cathedral Sleepout and raising as much money as possible, you’ll enable us to give people food, find them a home and teach them new skills.
What do I need to do to get involved?
All you need to do to take part is to bring a responsible adult and ask your family and friends to sponsor you to raise a minimum of £50.00.
The Liverpool Cathedral Sleepout is on Friday 5th April at Liverpool Cathedral. It costs £5.00* per person.
