The Big Sleep is held every winter to raise money for Cumbria Community Foundation’s Winter Warmth Appeal – helping older people in Cumbria stay warm and safe during the cold winter months. In the first two years, the Big Sleep attracted more than 400 people and raised almost £40,000 for the appeal.
In 2016 it will be held on Saturday 30th January at the Low Wood Bay Hotel, Windermere
In a bad winter, 300 elderly Cumbrians die every year due to cold weather as they are made to choose between heating and eating. The Big Sleep raises money for the Winter Warmth Appeal – a pot of cash distributed to help older people suffering from rising fuel costs and poor health.
