Big Teesside Sleepout

Big Teesside Sleepout Returns


This November dozens of Teessiders will endure a sleepless night down by the riverside – and why not join them.

This year,  the eighth Big Tees Sleepout is to be held outside of Middlesbrough College on the night of Friday November 18th. All those up to the challenge are welcome to come along – and there’s no training necessary. You just need to be aged 16+. 

All money raised in sponsorship from the Big Tees Sleepout will help fight poverty and homelessness across Teesside.

For those who are willing to give up their beds in favour of a sleeping bag, mat and warm gloves you may sleep easy the following night knowing all proceeds will be dedicated to such a worthy cause.On the night of the sleepout there will be access to hot drinks as well as toilets. You just need a sleeping bag, mat and warm clothes!

Oh, and a willingness to raise as much money as possible to help us help some of the amazing charities helping those suffering the effects of homelessness and/or poverty.
