Lower Sixth girls and staff took part in the annual St Basils Sleepout at the weekend and joined around 400 people at the fundraising event. Entry tickets were exchanged for a cardboard box and a big plastic bag to make a shelter for the night and the girls built two substantial structures.
Three powerful presentations were given from young people who had been helped by St Basils. These presentations made everyone aware of the plight of these young people and also of their gratitude to St Basils in helping them to get their lives back on track.
The Sleepout enabled the Sixth Formers to experience the harsh realities of youth homelessness and the event raises much needed funds for St Basils. If you would like to make a donation to the team then please send a cheque payable to “St Basils” for the attention of Mrs Winnett via the School Office.
