Tonight is the Big Cardboard Sleep Out!

Last year, Porchlight found 834 people sleeping rough in Kent. Five years ago that number was 148... that's a 463% increase!

Tonight 3,000+ Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers will be taking part in the biggest sleep out Kent has seen, gaining an insight into homelessness - and importantly, they are raising funds for Porchlight!

You can find out more about the sleepout, make a donation and support the work of Porchlight at

Watch Ollies story with your Beavers or Cubs to help them to understand what Porchlight does and how important their help is.
