Everyone needs to have a place to call home - a nice comfy bed, hot food to eat, somewhere you can watch television, play games or read a book. Unfortunately, not everyone in our city has this.

Liverpool Cathedral and The Whitechapel Centre are working hard with those people who need a place to call home and help them reach their full potential. We need your help, by spending ONE night away sleeping in Liverpool Cathedral and raise money, enabling us to help as many people as possible.

​All you need to do to take part is bring a responsible adult and ask your family and friends to sponsor you to raise a minimum of £50.00. There is an administration fee of £5 per person.
