Small local charity The Whitworth Trust, which raises money for vulnerable and homeless women in Cambridge, has teamed up with The Cambridge Convoy Refugee Action Group for this fundraising Winter Fair and Sponsored Sleepout. Please do put **Saturday the 26th January** in your diary!

From 1:30-4:30pm at our WINTER FAIR there will be stalls, refreshments, cake & entertainment @ St Giles Church. And from 6pm onwards, volunteers will be readying themselves to sleep out overnight in the grounds of St Giles, to raise money and awareness for local charities.

Details about this event are available via this link And if you know any groups or communities that might want to get involved in the sleepout, or would be interested in organising a mini sleepout of their own (perfect for school-age children), then get in touch with the sleepout team via the CamCRAG website!

The aim of this wonderful programme of events is to raise money and awareness for marginalised & forgotten people who will be sleeping rough this Winter, wherever and whoever they are.
