On Friday 3rd July the Shrewsbury Town Sleep out, sponsored by Shropshire Homes will be back for 2020 at Montgomery Waters Meadow Stadium to help raise money and awareness for homelessness across Shropshire.
The event will see participants spending the night sleeping outside at Montgomery Waters Meadow with only a sleeping bag to raise awareness about homelessness issues across the county. A report from Shelter in November 2018 indicated that there are now over 500 people in Shropshire who are currently homeless.
This will be a family friendly event, encouraging children, scouts groups, beavers etc, to get involved and help us raise awareness of this growing issue.
Funds raised from the event will go towards both the Shrewsbury Ark and helping us here at Shrewsbury Town in the Community put together our ‘Off the Streets F.C.’ Scheme.
