Porchlight - Big Cardboard Sleep Out 2022
Kent Scouts Big Cardboard Sleep Out for Porchlight 2022
This October, thousands of Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers in Kent will raise funds for Porchlight by spending a night outside in cardboard boxes, giving 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.

Phoenix ESSU in Margate
Phoenix ESSU in Margate started their community impact stage 4 this term and kicked off by organising a Sleepout for the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts of Holy Trinity (Margate). They invited a speaker from Porchlight to join them. They worked with the Beavers, cubs and Scouts to build their sleeping areas.
1st Littlebourne took part in the Big Cardboard Sleep Out. They had 15 Cubs and Scouts take part sleeping out and 5 leaders at our local Scout campsite, Ross Wood. We are happy that we have raised over £150 so far!
