The Big Newark Sleep Out was an evening not only marked by camaraderie but also by a sense of purpose as individuals gathered to sleep out, united in their support for those facing homelessness. Hosted at the YMCA Village, this event aimed to shed light on the challenges of homelessness while raising crucial funds for those in need.

The success of this year’s event has been nothing short of extraordinary. Surpassing expectations, over £18,000 has been raised and counting. This remarkable achievement stands as a testament to the generosity and compassion of the community, with individuals, groups, and businesses coming together to make a difference.

The impact of events like The Big Newark Sleep Out extends far beyond the funds raised. It is about raising awareness, fostering empathy, and inspiring action and highlighting the significance of providing vulnerable young people with the support they need to thrive. By offering guidance, resources, and a safe space, YMCA plays a pivotal role in empowering individuals to overcome adversity and build fulfilling lives.

We would like to thank everyone that has taken part and supported YMCA. Stay tuned as we unveil the total funds raised in the coming week, and remember, your support matters more than ever.
