We are very excited to announce that we are partnering with the World’s Big Sleep Out to host an official event at the Kia Oval Cricket Ground in London. Register your interest in the event and gain first access to tickets when they're released in September.

On 7th December thousands of people around the world will sleep out in unison to create the World’s largest display of solidarity with and in support of those experiencing homelessness and displacement. Our event will take place at the iconic Kia Oval cricket ground where you can join dedicated fundraisers to sleep out on the cold, concrete stands of the stadium after hearing from Big Issue vendors with first-hand experience of homelessness.

50% of fundraising raised from this event will go towards The Big Issue Foundation in order to help end poverty and exclusion for Big Issue vendors such as Bill, who is now in secure housing. The other 50% will go towards supporting people displaced internationally.

"It was such an amazing fundraiser. I now feel as though all misconceptions have been cleared up and I have a far better understanding of how exactly the charity helps its vendors. I have so much respect for them!"

- Rosie, Big Sleep Out participant
