Sleep Easy is an annual collaborative event with the YMCA Downslink (Guildford). Designed to help raise awareness of youth homelessness and help raise funds to tackle the challenge of homelessness in Guildford. Believe it or not Guildford has one of top 10% most deprived area's in England. The gap between the have's and the have nots in one of the highest in the country.
So how does it work?
Students from the University of Surrey and members of the public are invited to sleep out on the Austin Pearce Plaza. There is often a friendly competitive element with many people teaming up to form the best cardboard castle. The event not only raises money for an important cause but can also be a lot of fun, it's a giant sleepover with your mates after-all!
