Simon Community's Award-Winning Sleep Out is Back!

11 September 2019

This week, we were pleased to announce the return of One BIG Sleep Out taking place on 7th November at Belfast's iconic Stormont.

Named Fundraising Event of the Year at the recent Institute of Fundraising Northern Ireland Annual Awards, 2018’s One BIG Sleep Out welcomed over 50 participants and raised over £29,000 – helping the charity to continue to deliver shelter and support to those with no home.

This year, the charity will be growing on the event’s success, with the help of returning sponsor Blue Clarity Design Services Ltd, by delivering a bigger and better night filled with live music, a BBQ and a bit of craic. Slumbering at Stormont for the first time will be Rebecca McKinney from Cool FM's breakfast show.

Speaking about One BIG Sleep Out, Chief Executive at Simon Community, Jim Dennison commented: 

One BIG Sleep Out is back by popular demand. We’ve had individuals and businesses ask us throughout the year when they brave the cold for Simon and we cannot wait to welcome them, and new faces, to Stormont this coming November. We’re growing on last year’s successes to create an even bigger and better event – making One Big Sleep Out a truly unique event for a truly important cause.
