The Big Sleep 2018

The Big Sleep 2018


Join Cumbria Community Foundation for a night of entertainment and fundraising to support vulnerable older people in Cumbria this winter. You are invited to leave the comfort of your warm home, brace the cold January air and spend a night sleeping under the stars in aid of their Winter Warmth Appeal.

The number of winter related deaths is higher in Cumbria than most of the UK. In a bad winter 300 people will die due to the effects of the cold weather. Our appeal raises and distributes money to those who need it in order to remain warm, safe and healthy in the winter months.

By spending one night camping out at the Low Wood Bay Hotel Windermere, you could help keep one older person safe and warm this winter. Food, refreshments and overnight parking are all available; just bring yourself, your tent and sleeping bag and your winter woollies to keep you warm!
