Homelessness is increasing rapidly – largely due to the housing shortage and changes in the benefits system. Fortunately it is not a daily concern for most of us but it has been said that we are all only two pay cheques away from homelessness.
Framework is a charity tackling homelessness across Lincolnshire – including Boston and South Holland. We need your help – to demonstrate concern, to raise awareness and to raise valuable funds to help tackle homelessness locally.
Please join us for the first ever Lincolnshire Big Snore taking place in Boston on the night of Friday 24th February. This is a fundraising sleep out event during which you will, for one night only, experience something of the worst form of homelessness – rough sleeping. By three in the morning you will be glad to have a warm bed awaiting you at home.
We invite you to take part and encourage family, friends and work colleagues to do so too, or to help you by sponsoring your participation.
On the Night
There will be toilet facilities and hot drinks available all night, participants should prepare for the cold. Be sure to bring your sleeping bag and plenty of warm clothes.
Find out what it's all about. Watch our video below from our Mansfield Big Snore.
We ask each participant to raise a minimum of £50. You can secure your place with a non-refundable £10 fee for adults; for people aged 5-16 years the fee is £5. People under 18 may only take part if accompanied by an adult and a responsible adult must complete the registration of minors using the form online. All registration fees must be paid no later than 17th February 2017.
