The Big Sleep

The Big Sleep


The Big Sleep is held every winter to raise money for Cumbria Community Foundation’s Winter Warmth Appeal – a pot of cash distributed to help older people suffering from rising fuel costs and poor health. In the first four years, the Big Sleep has attracted more than 500 people and raised nearly £100,000 for the appeal.

Food, refreshments, entertainment and overnight parking are all included; just bring yourself, your tent and sleeping bag and your winter woollies to keep you warm!
