Story

We remain concerned about the plight of displaced people around the world, victims of war and persecution . This sleep out is an opportunity to do something to support those refugees who have made perilous journeys and are currently living in desperate conditions in Northern France as well as homeless people here in Cambridge. It is essential to ensure they are not forgotten and abandoned but to offer to meet basic human needs of warmth, shelter and nutrition. We will be uncomfortable for one night only
