YMCA Bedfordshire SleepEasy Event 2019
On Friday 15th March, The Mall Luton hosted and sponsored the YMCA Bedfordshire’s SleepEasy event for 2019 and welcomed nearly one hundred people to the centre to participate.
The giant sleepover saw pupils from Chantry Primary Academy plus Guides, families and representatives from local businesses, settle down for the night - both indoors in The Mall and outdoors on The Mall’s car park roof. The annual event aims to raise funds for the vital services provided locally by YMCA Bedfordshire and increase awareness of rough sleeping.
Thank you to all those that took part in the event and also to all that donated towards the cause. In excess of £10,000 was raised with this going directly to YMCA Bedfordshire and focussed on helping and supporting people of all ages in Luton who rely on them for accommodation.
