After success last year, SafeNet are returning with their Turf Moor sleepout to raise vital funds for charities in the local community.
SafeNet are looking for businesses and people in the community to join them for one night on Friday 13th October and brave the cold weather to sleep a night in Vincent Kompany’s dugout at Turf Moor.
Anyone over the age of 16 can take part and are asked to hit a sponsorship target of £150. Participants are asked to bring warm clothes, a sleeping bag and a sleeping mat to bed down for the night. Food and refreshments will be provided.
Lisa Durkin, Business Development Officer at SafeNet said: ‘’Last year we had a great turnout for the sleepout. It was challenging and proved to be a humbling experience, giving insight into how hard it is for people who are homeless.
We rely on fundraising events like this to raise vital funds that we need to support families in their recovery journey. ‘’
Ben Bottomley, Head of Partnerships at Burnley FC in the Community said: “We’re really looking forward to running the Turf Sleepout again and raising money for three brilliant charities. BFCitC run over fifty diverse programmes covering a wide range of issues including mental health, youth violence, cancer rehabilitation, food poverty and numerous others. We are looking for your support to make difference to people’s lives in our local community.”
