All smiles at Winchester’s Big Sleep Out
3:00pm Friday 30th August 2013 in Winchester
IT will be all smiles at Winchester’s Big Sleep Out later this month.
Denplan, the dental payment plan specialists, are the first corporate team to sign up to the charity fundraiser.
Twelve members of their staff will be digging out their sleeping bags and thermals as part of the Sleep Out, which raises cash for the city’s leading homelessness charities, Trinity Winchester and Winchester Churches Nightshelter.
Organisers hope 500 people, from individuals to groups and corporate teams, will spend a night under the stars in an effort to raise money for the district’s homeless.
Rosie Howell, corporate team coach at Denplan, said: “We’re all very excited about taking part in such a great event, having the opportunity to sleep at Winchester Cathedral and raise money for such an important cause. We just hope there are no snorers among us!”
