We provided festoon lighting and power cables for the Big Sleep Out in 2016. It was amazing, hundreds of people decided to sacrifice a night of sleep in order to sleep in the freezing cold in a car park in Uxbridge. They raised tens of thousands of pounds to support We Are Trinitys work – and there’s still time to sponsor people who took part … here’s what they said:
“The most memorable part for me was waking up! Amazed that I had slept at all … and the genuine feeling of appreciation for how very lucky I am to have a bed and a home to return to. It was amazing, thank you all at Trinity – your compassion as an organisation and individuals really comes through. It was an amazing opportunity”
“I felt so relieved when I woke up in the cold that I could go home to escape the uncomfortable experience. This is something I will not forget”
“I was amazed at how many people are willing to give up their in bed at their home in order to raise money and awareness for those in need, who they won’t ever have met. It was heart warming to see the amount of people willing to do that”
“I couldn’t possibly limit the best part of my experience to one thing – doing something good with others that didn’t require Iron Man fitness levels; the food, drink and company; my kids learning the value of money and the hardship that others endure daily”
It was a pleasure for us to work on this project. It was great to see so many people come together to raise money for homelessness. Our festoon lights looked great with over 100m worth on poles and placed in trees.
With power cables run throughout the area to provide power for the kettles to keep everyone warm!
Looking forward to 2017 already 🙂
