The YMCA Derbyshire Sleep Easy


  • 3aaa County Ground Nottingham Road Derby, DE21 6DA (map)

Bondholders are invited to join The High Sheriff of Derbyshire Elizabeth Fothergill Hon D Univ. CBE DL, YMCA Derbyshire and Marketing Derby for the most unusual Bondholder event of the year.

  • Can you and your team take up the challenge of sleeping rough so others don't have to?
  • Would you like the opportunity to meet other Bondholders over coffee and a campfire?
  • Can you top the Bondholder leader board and raise the most funds for YMCA Derbyshire?

What happens at Sleep Easy? Entrants challenge themselves to spend the night sleeping rough and get sponsorship in the process. Alongside the opportunity to mix with other Bondholders, YMCA provides hot drinks, food, cardboard boxes and a campfire.

Why? YMCA believes every young person should have a safe front door. Sleep Easy helps raise vital funds needed to make this happen.

Last year, 80 people slept rough at Sleep Easy and raised £30,000 helping YMCA to support 299 people. 

The one night you spend sleeping rough will make a difference to a homeless young person for weeks, months or even a lifetime.

With a target of £30,000 to raise at this year's event, please take up the challenge and be part of a Bondholder event with a difference. Help YMCA to raise the funds it needs to keep the homeless people of Derby safe and well; providing them with opportunities to become productive members of our city.
