We need your support to help us deliver the biggest event in our calender
The Rock Trust SLEEP OUT – our flagship fundraising event – takes place every November, and has done since 1990.
We hold two events every winter – one event in partnership with our End Youth Homelessness partners and one for our young supporters, aged 12 – 21.
In 2014, over 200 participants took part, from local business, voluntary sector organisations, schools, churches and youth group and raised over £32,000!
The big national partnership Sleep Out is a unique fundraising event for homeless and disadvantaged young people in the UK. In 2015, we need to organise two Sleep Out events which will raise awareness of youth homelessness in Edinburgh; engage with young people in the community, educating them about the issue of youth homelessness; raise the profile of The Rock Trust and the services we provide for vulnerable young people; raise vital funds to support young homeless people in Edinburgh & the Lothian, with a target to raise over £35,000.
These events cost approx. £6,000 to run and would represent almost a 6:1 return on investment.
We are looking for support from local businesses to help us deliver the sleep out in 2015.
We currently receive support in kind from our fantastic sleep out partners Stoats, La Favorita Delivered, G4S Security and the musicians and bands who give their time and perform for our crowd.
Sponsor a roof over their heads! We need £2,500 to pay for the marquee – help keep the fundraisers dry!
Sponsor a place to tinkle! We need £1,500 for portoloos, barriers and office cabin
Sponsor the groovy music, man! We need £1,800 to pay for the lighting, electrics and sound!
Whats in it for you?
The Rock Trust can offer any sleep out sponsor and corporate partner the opportunity for positive PR and increased brand awareness via our significant social media presence, newsletter and website. We would be more than happy to include your logo and testimonial on the partners page of our website, visit and speak to staff teams about the work that we do and the young people we support, provide team building opportunities (decorating flats mainly) as well as providing that warm fuzzy feeling that you get when doing an act of goodwill for charity.
