Claire said: “Homelessness is very close to our hearts. We have worked with Hope4 a lot over the years and seen how they have developed, expanded and continued to support our local homeless and vulnerable community. 

“As much as the sleep out is always a challenge and we are expecting it to be very cold, we only have to endure this for one night which is nothing compared to what some people have to face night after night. It may be uncomfortable and we won’t get much sleep, but we believe that this is a small price to pay to raise awareness of this ever-worsening issue.”

The volunteers and staff at Hope4 make a huge difference to the community. Their holistic support combined with their determination enables Hope4 to provide services that has helped so many people across Rugby. From laundry facilities, hot food and clothing to night shelters and IT access. They endeavour to give guests another chance to get back on their feet.

The Hope4 Rugby sleep out takes place in Newbold Road car park, next to the charity’s premises. The sociable event invites volunteers to construct cardboard forts to keep out the cold and make the ground slightly less uncomfortable. Everyone eats together, plays games, competes for the best cardboard and as it approaches 11pm, tucks into their sleeping bags.

Top tips from Claire:

1. Wear lots of layers. It’s not the most comfortable, but it helps regulate your body temperature. I have been known for my fleecy pyjama bottoms, not only do I like to feel as if I am actually going to bed, but it’s an extra layer of warmth. It may look silly, but trust me, no one cares about fashion at sleep outs.

2. Make sure your sleeping area is waterproof. If you are dry then at least you can try and keep warm within your sleeping bag. The cardboard competition is a bit of fun, but actually serves a useful purpose.

3. Thick socks, gloves and a woolly hat. The human body loses seven to 10 per cent of heat through your head*. Your extremities, like feet and hands, are quick to follow which can cause a number of health problems if exposed to bitter temperatures for a prolonged period.
