Have you ever thought how it would feel to shut your eyes and try to sleep on the street?
Would you be able to rest, or would you lie awake fearing what or who might come by in the night?
Come and join us for our Solidarity Sleepout on Saturday 13th May 2017, which is kindly being hosted at the Parish Church of the Ascension, Stretford Road in Hulme.
Join us to show your solidarity with homeless young people living on the street across the world.
The event is being organised by S.A.L.V.E. International who work with children living on the streets of Jinja, Uganda, and the Congo Children Trust who support children living on the streets of Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of the Congo.
It will be an evening of music and story sharing with a performance from African drummers, as well as talks from Manchester based charities who work with children on the streets.
Join us to raise awareness about street-connected children and the challeges they face living on the streets. It's also a chance to learn more about the work of S.A.L.V.E. International and Congo Children Trust and help raise vital funds to support the work of these two small charities who want to make sure that no child has to call the streets their home.
All faiths and non-faiths welcome! If you are not able to stay overnight then you are also invited to come and join us for the evening actvities.
Please note, this is a free event. If you are able/interested in using this event to fundraise for one or both of these great causes, that would be warmly welcomed, but is by no means obligatory.
Join our Solidarity Sleepout for Children living on the streets all over the world.
Dare to care.
