Porchlight - Big Cardboard Sleep Out!

091 092

Over the evening of the 12th October 2018 thousands of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers held a sponsored sleep out for Porchlight. It gave those involved a better understanding about what people who are homeless have to go through every day.

Money raised by Kent Scouts Big Cardboard Sleep Out will help make a difference to the help Porchlight support the homeless and vulnerable.

Find out more about Porchlight on their website and follow them on Twitter and Facebook.

Tonight we held a debate ‘do homeless people have a choice?’ before our Sleepout. We decided £2 would be our budget to try to buy a day of food that we could eat with no kitchen or stove. Some good efforts there!
