CHESS Big Sleep Out – Chess Homeless

CHESS Big Sleep Out

Take part in our CHESS Big Sleep Out - 28th October 2022

The CHESS BIG Sleep Out is back but different!

We are being hosted in the magnificent grounds of New Hall School where you can pitch a tent or bring a sleeping bag and sleep under the stars.

With some activities planned for the evening it will be perfect for all ages, whilst also raising funds for the work we do with the homeless.

REMEMBER, apart from being a great opportunity to socialise your sponsorship contributions will make a difference helping our work to support homeless single adults.

Be part of something fun and make a difference too.
