World's Big Sleepout in Newport - sponsors needed

09/09/2019

The following is issued by Newport charity Amazing Grace Spaces...

The World's Big Sleepout is happening all over the world, including Times Square New York, Trafalgar Square, London – the fundraising campaign is a global campaign where our audience do their bit by sleeping out to raise funds for local charity as well as international homeless causes.  For full list of cities involved go to https://www.bigsleepout.com

The social media attention locally, nationally and internationally is built to generate positive PR for Newport’s commitment to tackling homelessness and we believe provides an exceptional opportunity for corporate co-branding.   We are committed to elevating your brand through all our communications.

Our venue sponsor Rodney Parade has been confirmed and we are really excited for them to be on board.  The event will have performances from local bands and celebrity involvement and have games and activities zone and several sleep zones.  Will Smith and Dame Helen Mirren have confirmed their involvement and we will have a personal message and bedtime stories via VT on the night.

Amazing Grace Spaces has several planned projects for affordable housing and supported housing for people in crisis and is developing a grow project to include self-development, education and meaningful activities for homeless people in Newport.

As well as funding more emergency safe space pods, we have partnered with a charitable organisation, Green Pastures who has funded the purchase of a house in Newport which we plan to renovate to provide a 5/6 bed Supported Women’s House.

Our efforts to find solutions to homelessness and people in crisis can’t take effect unless we have the support of everyone in our community.

We are seeking corporate sponsorship to enable us to put on this event in Newport and welcome initial discussions of our plans and how we can create a meaningful partnership.
