Story of Sponsor Lisa Hawkins-Weeks for The Big Cambridge-Calais Sleepout 2020
Sleeping out, away from family and friends, with no facilities to keep clean should not be people’s reality. It is. By raising funds and awareness you’ll be joining a movement that wants to support people who do not wish to sleep out but are, and help change perspectives and challenge policy.
