Because of COVID and social distancing we are unable to hold our annual SLEEP Out event at Chelmsford Cathedral. So, we have decided to introduce the CHESS BIG SLEEP IN for this year throughout November and December.
2020 has been a diﬃcult and challenging year, with everyone being aﬀected in some way by Coronavirus. For us as a Charity it has meant cancellation of our events and being able to be out engaging with the community, raising the funds needed to run our services. You may have taken part in our annual Sleep Out before, which was our biggest fundraiser. The CHESS Big Sleep In is our way of doing something that you can be a part of and raise funds in the process. By taking part you may not really get to experience what it’s like to be homeless, but you will become more aware of the challenges that a homeless person faces, and the money you raise will make a huge diﬀerence to the services we can oﬀer to those that need us.
Could you support CHESS by holding a SLEEP IN at home?
For instance SLEEP IN: your garden, SLEEP IN: your lounge, SLEEP IN: a tent or shed, any area within your bubble – it’s your opportunity to be creative, have fun and provide us with your valuable support!
You can do it for one night, two nights or for as long as you want to!
More ideas to follow…..keep an eye on social media!
If you are unable to take part in a “CHESS BIG SLEEPIN” event but would like to support CHESS by way of giving a donation, you can do this in a few ways.
