Cheltenham YMCA's Sleep Easy 2014 event has finally arrived. Tonight we have 55 people sleeping out in the car park of our Sports Centre in Arle Road tonight. Why not sponsor a sleeper? Every penny really does count and will go towards the work of providing hope and homes for vulnerable young people. For one night we will experience what it is like to “sleep rough”. Let’s ensure that no young person has to experience it for real in the future. Visit our Virgin Money Giving Page and sponsor any of those taking part or make a donation to Cheltenham YMCA. Follow us on Twitter for our latest news and pictures through the night @cheltenham ymca #sleepy14

Cheltenham YMCA is taking a proactive stance to support the homeless of the present and of the future within Gloucestershire. We are more than doubling our supported housing places in Cheltenham with a phased rebuild and refurbishment programme at 6 Vittoria Walk. Our new building is costing £4.1 million. Following a grant of £3.3 million from the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency and a contribution of £200,000 from our own reserves, we launched a capital campaign to raise the remaining £600,000.

In March last year, over 20 people joined us for our first ever ‘Sleep Easy’ event and raised over £6,000 in sponsorship by sleeping out overnight. Churches and community groups, YMCA members and volunteers have also helped us to raise ...
