After a virtual event last year, Huddersfield Town’s Big Sleep Out is back at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The annual fundraising event, organised by Huddersfield Town Foundation, will be held on Friday February 25.

With 2022 being the foundation’s 10th anniversary year, this is the perfect chance to take on a new challenge and raise as much money as possible for good causes.

Those that take part are encouraged to raise a minimum of £100, which will be shared between the Town Foundation’s Breakfast Clubs and local organisations tackling poverty.

Previous beneficiaries include Basement Recovery Project, who received £2,160 towards furniture for a new supported accommodation unit and Dewsbury Community Outreach, who used their £1,500 donation to purchase food for their community kitchen.

After arrival at 9pm those sleeping out are able to set up their ‘den’ for the night in the Chadwick Lawrence Stand, whether that be in the concourse or in the stadium bowl itself. The event will conclude at 7am the following morning having given people a taste of what it might be like to live on the streets.

This year, groups of people in particular are encouraged to take part, whether that be families (including children), colleagues, scouts, brownies, air cadets, faith groups or otherwise! To book your place at the Big Sleep Out CLICK HERE.

Should you be planning to come along as a group, each person taking part should be registered separately. This allows the foundation to properly manage the event capacity. Parents are able to register under 18s as part of their own booking.

After registration you will be sent further details and advice on how to set up a fundraising page, what to bring with you and the order of play for the night.
