For one night only – on Friday 9th October – local homeless charity Glass Door will host a Sleep Out event at Duke of York Square, where hundreds of people are expected to brave a night ‘under the stars’ (whatever the weather) to raise money for emergency accommodation in West London.
You are now able to sign up for the event at www.glassdoor.org.uk/sleepout2015.htm
Experience a small taste of some of the difficulties that so many people who are homeless in the Capital have to deal with – freezing cold, vulnerability, and the difficulty of carrying on your day with little sleep – and raise money for a very worthwhile cause at the same time.
This is the event’s third year. In 2014 it raised £140,000 – enough to fund a new winter shelter. Participants have described the event as inspiring and thought provoking.
Our shops have reopened their doors and many of our restaurants’ terraces are open for alfresco dining in the spring sunshine. We want to reassure you that your safety remains paramount, measures are in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit.
