The Railway Children Sleepout 2020

Friday, 24 January 2020

Last year Railway Children launched a new event to raise money for the thousands of children around the world who have nowhere to sleep. It proved to be such a success that they’re doing it again this year.

On Thursday 30 January 2020, fundraisers will be swapping their nice warm beds for one night on the cold floor of Milton Keynes Railway station, not just for fun… but to help raise awareness and vital funds to support hundreds of children facing this ordeal every single day.

What to expect

You don't need to be super fit; you don't need six months training and you don't need to spare a fortnight to take part. In fact, this challenge is so easy you could do it in your sleep!

Despite last year being one of the coldest nights of the year, the inaugural sleepout was well supported. So supported in fact, that this year they’ve expanded the number of locations to nine, including Milton Keynes Station where places are still available.

It might be cold, it may be noisy, but rest assured you will feel comfort in knowing that you will be helping children from all around the world.

Want to take part?

If you would like to help, all you need to do is bring; a sleeping bag and pillow, warm clothes (and plenty of them), plus your mobile phone to capture and share your experience with others to help raise awareness.

But don’t feel like you aren’t getting anything in return… you get your own branded Railway Children beanie hat, refreshments throughout the night and pride in helping a valuable cause.

Interested? You can register online right now!
