Master Paul Nash survived The Lady Mayoress’s Sleep Out 2023

From the Master

I’VE DONE IT! Over 100 of us slept out in Guildhall Yard to raise awareness for the homeless, and support The Lord Mayor’s Appeal and the Pret Foundation for the Homeless.

A huge thank you to all those who have supported me so far. There’s still time to make a donation if you haven’t:

Even Past Lord Mayor Alderman Sir David Wootton came to cheer us on! No, didn't sleep in his DJ!

On Thursday, 16th March, luckily the rain held off and it was a mild night, but the paving slabs were damp. Never mind, the three pieces of cardboard we were given soaked it up!

My Bed!

Welcome by The Lady Mayoress, Felicity Lyons, who slept out too!
The Sleep Out Team
It’s amazing how over 100 people “disappear” round the edges of the Guildhall Yard in their sleeping bags!

Thank you again.
