For the last six years the Eden Project has hosted an annual Sleep Out outside the Biomes and the events have raised thousands of pounds for two charities, St Petrocs and the Amber Foundation.
Government guidance due to the pandemic means that the mass Sleep Out cannot take place at Eden this year. Instead, people are being invited to join in remotely on the night, November 19, 2020.
Participants in the Virtual Eden Sleep Out will be able enjoy content online to entertain them and inspire their fund-raising. Among the contributors on the night will be Mimi Beard, who became homeless aged 16 before turning her life around, and singer-songwriter Suzie Mac.
The changes to the event location this year creates the opportunity for more people to get involved than ever from their own homes, it means children and families can now join in and it means you can get creative setting up your own sleeping area, will you head into the garden? or stay indoors on the floor, under the dining room table or in the kitchen? We would love to hear your ideas for how you’ll be getting involved!
To join in, participants pay a registration fee of £25 and then fundraise as much as they can for their chosen charity.
