Time Out says
Get an idea of what people who are sleeping rough experience every night in Sydney at this charitable community event
Pack your sleeping bags, beanies and thermoses and join the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre (NNC) in their sleepout fundraiser. You’re in for a nights sleep at Newtown Square that aims to raise awareness about the challenges faced by people experiencing homelessness, and contribute financially to securing permanent accommodation for them in the Inner West.
There’ll be informative speakers on the night sharing details on how you can help vulnerable people in the community, dinner that’s covered by your sign-up donation, and local entertainment to warm everyone’s spirits. To participate, you’ll need to sign up to the fundraising page – as a team or individually – and raise precisely $1,214 per person in donations that will go towards combating homelessness in the Inner West.
