Big Sleep Out

On Saturday night a group from River Church slept outside in our car park to raise funds for SPEAR London. We didn't know what to expect as we stood in the warmth at church. When we got outside we giggled trying to put our boxes together, and our sleeping bags in the box. Once settled, huddled together, we realised how uncomfortable and cold the car park floor is, even with cover down and boxes. Many slept, many didn't. Many boxes collapsed, many didn't. However I was very grateful to be in a group with people I know and that it was for just one night. So many don't get that choice. 
Thanks for all the donations - we have raise over a £1000 so far.
Thanks too to Access Storage for donating boxes, to Chris' Cafe for providing bacon rolls for breakfast and to the small team of helpers who made soup and made sure we were all safe.
