like to give you an update on the progress made so far on organizing
the 'Sleepout' on the 7th December, aimed at raising awareness of
homelessness and raising money for St.Petrocs. Full
information click here
We now have
a live page on Eventbrite click below https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-inner-wheel-sleepout-tickets-77080867951?utm_term=eventurl_text
whereby people can buy tickets. If you go to their homepage and
put - 'homeless' into the search bar, the details will come up
and you will be able to purchase a ticket. BF Adverture has kindly
allowed me to use their Eventbrite account to enable us to do
this, it has also been shared on our Inner Wheel Facebook page
to you all to share again.
I have made
the arrival time 8.30pm. People with tickets are expected to bring
their own sleeping bags, blankets, roll mats etc. Their ticket
just buys the floor space.
At 9pm John
Head has kindly agreed to be the compere for 45 - 50 minutes of
entertainment. He has managed to secure 4 acts already, and has
2 more which he thinks will also help. Each speaking for 5 to
7 minutes. This will include music, laughter, magic and a Christmas
story. He said that he has had a great response in securing the
acts for us.
I would like
to stipulate that this evening should be an alcohol free night,
as often alcoholism often goes hand in hand with homelessness.
I will be selling hot cocoa and cake during the evening, and would
love some help with a few cakes if possible please.
will be enforced at 10.30pm by staff at BF for a bit of fun!
Julia Dale (Dale's Butchers) have very kindly donated bacon, sausages
and eggs, so that the next morning we can offer a full English
breakfast at BF's kitchen which we helped to fund raise for recently.
It will be fantastic to use this facility and appreciate where
our help went.
Roy Treloar have kindly offered to cook the breakfasts which we
will charge £5 a head for. (They have since been excused
from sleeping rough!! Ha Ha). Some help with washing up, waitressing
etc would be appreciated here too please.
I have spoken
to St.Petrocs and they will provide some information about St.Petrocs
to display at the event.
I would like
to donate funds raised from the floor space bookings (£10
a bum!) to St.Petrocs , all of the funds raised for the breakfasts
to BF, and the remainder for cake an cocoa sold to Inner Wheel
miscellaneous charities which we will donate to at the end of
toilet facilities close to the barn, a torch would be advisable
to bring along too!
that sleeping rough is a lot to ask of you all, as it will be
cold, so please don't be embarrassed if not taking part over night,
but your support in terms of perhaps a cake or washing up etc
would be fantastic.
As well as
increasing awareness of homeless people and raising money for
the wonderful charity St.Petrocs, I hope to make the event fun.
It is amazing what Inner Wheelers and Rotarians achieve when we
all pull together, so please support as much as you can and encourage
your family and friends to join in.
If you would
like help with purchasing the tickets on Eventbrite, please let
girls in anticipation of your help and support and thank you all
for your friendship.
