SASH is busy making the final plans for our York Sleepout which is taking place on March 27th at Door 84. This involves sleeping out under the stars with only cardboard boxes and sleeping bags for shelter. There will be live entertainment, delicious refreshments and a Best Shelter competition judged by the Lord Mayor. The reason we do our Sleepout is to draw public attention to the hidden problem of youth homelessness and raise funds for SASH’s services for young people facing homelessness. In York this year we have already provided over 60 emergency bed nights, so if you are wondering whether to do this, please sign up today and make a difference in your community. There are still 50 spaces left to fill, so rope in your friends and family to join you.
If you are feeling fit we have our next biggest fundraiser coming up called ‘Cycle for SASH’. This is a 43 mile ride starting and finishing in York. We have had lots of interest in this event already. However, as a supporter, I am sending you the link to sign up before we make this event public. There are only 50 spaces for this event so sign up soon to avoid disappointment.
We have lots of other events coming where we would love to have your support. Your involvement can really make a difference to vulnerable young people in York. To learn more about the work we do please watch this inspiring video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I hope to hear from you soon.
