InTown Centre Inc Big Sleep Out
6 July 2019 – 7 July 2019
5:00 PM – 8:00 AM
The 2019 Big Sleep Out event is the inaugural fundraiser for the Bunbury InTown Centre. The event has been created to raise both funds and awareness for homelessness, and gives teams and individuals from across our community the opportunity to experience a night sleeping under the stars at the Graham Bricknell Shell, Blair Street, Bunbury, a location known as a safe sleeping spot for our homeless population. Homelessness is a hidden crisis in our community, with “rough sleepers” forming only a small number of the population who experience unstable or unsafe housing. Many families and individuals couch hop, stay with friends and family, sleep in cars or in short-term accommodation. On any given day, around 9,000 people are homeless in WA. By experiencing a night sleeping as our homeless do, members of the public can raise awareness and much needed funds, to assist the most vulnerable community members, through increased programs and outreach services.
