LEEDS BIG SLEEP 

Leeds Rhinos Foundation, St George’s Crypt and St Gemma’s Hospice are delighted to announce that they will be teaming up again this year for the 2021 Leeds Big Sleep…In!

This year’s event will take place virtually on 5th February 2021, with people asked to sleep in the most unusual, uncomfortable place they can find to raise much-needed funds in support of our city’s most vulnerable people. That could mean sleeping in the garage, bathroom or even the garden!

The Leeds Big Sleep is a major fundraising event which involves volunteers, business leaders, Leeds Rhinos players and staff all giving up a night of comfort in their bed to highlight the plight of homeless people in Leeds and support the work of all three charities to protect these vulnerable communities.

Last year’s event raised a record total of £58,000, with more than 250 people braving the cold to join the sleepout.

A whole host of virtual entertainment will be broadcast throughout the evening for participants to enjoy, whilst selfies can be shared on social media using the hashtag #LeedsBigSleepIn.

This sponsored ‘sleep-in’ is open to all ages, meaning the whole family can get involved and help us make a difference!
