300 people will be spending a cold November night ‘roughing it’ in Calderdale’s iconic Piece Hall!
Why? Homelessness is an increasing problem across the UK and Calderdale is no different. This event will give you just a taste of what it’s like to be street homeless. It cannot truly replicate what it is like to be scared, lonely and isolated, but it can help make a real difference through raising awareness of the issues affecting homeless people and raising much needed funds for Calderdale SmartMove, a local registered charity supporting homeless and vulnerable people across Calderdale.
The Sleep Out will be held on Friday 9 November 2018 from 7:30pm until 7:00am the next day, at The Piece Hall, Halifax. The jewel of Halifax that is an awe inspiring 18th Century Cloth Hall that’s been compared to a Venetian Piazza.
