Postponed - New Date to be confirmed in 2020

The Glow in the Night Sponsored Sleepout was planned to take place on Sat 28th March.  However Barnabus, MMU and Glow Events have taken the joint decision to postpone the event in response to the latest social distancing advice to the COVID – 19 Coronavirus .

We’re sure postponing this sponsored event will be disappointing to our participants and supporters who are committed to helping rough sleepers in our City. Losing funds from large sponsored events like this represents a huge challenge to Barnabus but we are sure you will understand our decision to put the health and safety of our supporters first.

We will be holding this event later on in the year and will continue to update you, to find out more information please see the full statement on the official page.


Funds raised from these large events keep our Drop-in and Support Office open so that we can give a lifeline to those in need. Other ways to fundraise for us through these challenging times are facebook fundraising, online or perhaps unusual individual or family fundraising challenges, these will all help to support our work. We would love to hear your ideas [email protected] you can also find an up-to-date current list of items that we need on our website.


We’re so thankful for the continuing compassion you have to support people in desperate need and we really can’t do this work without you. Giving thanks for you and hope to see you soon, stay safe with love from all at Barnabus.

We really hope you will join our rescheduled sleepout, this is one we did with the RAF last year, read all about it here
