DIY Big Sleep

Older people around the county are kept warm each year thanks to generous donations to our Winter Warmth Appeal.

Unfortunately, we cannot to run the Big Sleep this year. We have had an amazing six years of running the event, which raised more than £100,000 in that time.

Instead we are encouraging people to continue raising money for our Winter Warmth Appeal by hosting their own DIY Big Sleep for one night.

This year we are determined to raise even more funds to give out as grants to older people in Cumbria so they do not have to make the choice between eating and heating.

To participate download our DIY Big Sleep Fundraising Guide.

We would love to help you raise more funds by sharing your photos and a fundraising link, please send them to
