Why Take Part?

The Big Sleep supports Cumbria Community Foundation’s Winter Warmth Fund.

Every winter 300 elderly people in Cumbria die because of the effects of the cold weather.  They’re dying because they can’t afford to keep warm, because the cost of fuel is rising and because the schemes which offered to insulate homes for free are stopping.

By taking part in the Big Sleep and battling a night of cold weather, you can help raise vital funds to ensure that people can heat their homes effectively this winter.

Anne is an elderly lady who has received help from our Winter Warmth Appeal in the past. To listen to how the Appeal has supported Anne throughout the winter click here .
