It was the second-ever Big Sleep Out hosted by the Town Foundation with over 200 people sleeping rough for the night on Friday 8 March 2019 to raise money for local homeless causes.
Participants slept on cardboard kindly sponsored by BMP Packaging between the rows of seats in the LV Britannia Rescue stand or on the concourse on the eve of Huddersfield Town’s Premier League game against Bournemouth.
Last year’s Big Sleep Out raised over £55,000 with 100% of the funds raised being used to support 10 local charities. Funds to date show that circa £40k has been raised already this year with further amounts coming in daily.
