On November 8th 2013 200 people took part in the Manchester Sleepout and spent the night sleeping rough outside Manchester Cathedral.
During the evening they heard moving stories from people who had personal experiance of rough sleeping and were sung a lullaby by our Streetwise Opera group. They then bedded down outside the cathedral in torential rain and hail stones and really experianced what it's like to be cold and wet.
Over £40,000 has already been raised. Thanks very much for everyone who took part and to everyone who sponsored people. We will be repeating the event next year.
