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.

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

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.
