YMCA BURTON UPON TRENT & DISTRICT

Sleep Out 2017

Thank you to all that took part in our amazing Sleep Out 2017

YMCA Sleepout 2017

Our 9th Sleepout had another record breaking turnout with 190 people taking part.

175 people slept-out at Pirelli Stadium, home of the Burton Albion Brewers and 15 slept at the graveyard at St Modwen’s Church in Burton town centre.

The youngest participant was just 4yrs old and the furthest someone had travelled was 149 miles!

We had food supplied by Subways, Buskers corner featuring Chris Baldwin and Heather Gallager as well as breakfast provided by Burton Albion Community Trust.

Podcasters Back of a camper van recorded snippets of the evening and the hour long podcast can be heard via:
