World’s Big Sleep Out Cardiff

SLEEP OUT UNDER THE STARS AT THE ICONIC CARDIFF CASTLE TO END HOMELESSNESS

On Saturday 7th December Welsh homelessness charity, Llamau, will host the World’s Biggest Sleep Out at Cardiff Castle, welcoming up to 2,000 people into the historic grounds to sleep outside for the night and raise funds to end homelessness.

Last year, Llamau supported 10, 621 young people, women and children to leave homelessness behind them for good. We genuinely believe homelessness is not inevitable. We are daring to imagine a world without homelessness and are determined to achieve it.

By taking part in the World’s Biggest Sleep Out you’ll be helping to raise lifesaving funds for a targeted 1,000,000 homeless and displaced people across Wales and throughout the world.

On the night, you can join a growing list of Welsh celebrities attending the Cardiff event including Matt ‘Dirty Vegan’ Pritchard and Richard Parks alongside some of Wales’ best musicians, Boy Azooga, Kizzy Crawford, Shelleyann Evans and The Gentle Good, for one incredible night of solidarity under the stars.

The event, hosted by Llamau in partnership with World’s Big Sleep Out and Social Bite, is happening as part of a global showing of solidarity with those experiencing homelessness and displacement. For one night only, an expected 50,000 people will sleep outside in iconic locations across the globe.

Registration is open now, and Llamau are asking everyone taking part to commit to raising £150. 100% of funds raised will go towards homelessness charities, with a 50/50 split between Llamau’s work to end homelessness right here in Wales and global charities helping homeless and displaced people. International partners for the campaign include UNICEF USA, Malala Fund and the Institute of Global Homelessness.
