Sleep Out 2021

22nd October 2021

We are always stunned by the sheer level of determination and support that our supporters give us here at 1625 Independent People.

Once again, Sleep Out was a huge success. We have raised around £30,000 (with more coming in) and had a great (albeit very cold) night. A special thank you to:

  • Enlightened
  • Amber Audio
  • Southwest Marquees
  • The Longest Johns
  • The Nasty Fishmonger
  • Generation UK
  • Osei Johnson
  • Elise
  • Dani and Jess
  • Comfort in Chaos
  • Suspension Theatre
  • Naren from Free Silent Disco

Without the event wouldn’t have been what it was. Lets do it all again in 2022!
