Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintEmail

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
in and around Manchester. The sponsorship you raise will help
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.
