This year Cornerstone will be hosting a Big Sleep-Out in support of the thousands of people who have to endure sleeping rough on our streets.

This is your opportunity to help homeless men and women

Cornerstone support homeless men and women in Manchester.

You can enter as an individual but also as a family, with friends
or as a team with work colleagues or as an organisation. Even the
Bishop of Salford †John Arnold will be taking part.
We do not set a minimum sponsorship but encourage participants
to raise as much as they can.

It was a great privilege to be able to welcome Bishop John to 463 and show him all that has already been achieved.
