Suits on the Streets

Would you sleep out for one night?

Suits on the Streets 2019
Thursday 17th October 2019

Suits on the Streets is our annual fundraising and awareness-raising event, where we invite a bunch of ‘suits’ from offices around Bradford to sleep rough, to support Inn Churches.

The event does not try and replicate homelessness, but our ‘suits’ sleep outside, on cardboard, on the cold hard floor – albeit with hot food, drinks, a roaring fire and buskers to keep people warm and entertained.

Suits on the Streets is a great event for teams or individuals to experience something together that, for many, is the reality of their everyday life.

The event aims to highlight the harsh realities of homelessness and also offers the opportunity to raise vital funds that will directly support homeless people in Bradford.

Suits on the Street 2019

On Thursday 17th October 2019, Inn Churches are holding their seventh annual Suits on the Streets event.

Create your own fundraising page (you will need to register for a Wonderful account, and remember to choose ‘Inn Churches’ as the charity to support).

Where?

The venue is the old arches, near Forster Square train station in Bradford, a unique and interesting venue perfectly suited to host our sleep out. The event aims to highlight the harsh realities of homelessness and also offers the opportunity to raise vital funds that will directly support homeless people in Bradford.

What’s it like?

The event does not try and replicate homelessness, but you will be sleeping outside, on cardboard, on the cold hard floor. There will be hot food, drinks, a roaring fire and buskers to keep people warm and entertained.

Suits on the Streets is a great event for teams or individuals to experience something together that, for many, is the reality of their everyday life. This often life-changing event is an amazing opportunity for team building and will give a collective experience completely different from the norm.

How does it work?

Either volunteer as an individual or a team, or nominate a “suit” from your office (with their permission!).

The “suits” give up their bed for the night and come and sleep out under the arches with us.

The money you raise when friends, colleagues and family sponsor you for the night makes it possible for Inn Churches to offer practical help to homeless people in the winter months, including a bed for the night, hot meals and support into long-term accommodation.
