Night on the Acre - Fundraisers

Details Hide[-]

A Night on the Acre is BACK and entering its third year and will be taking place on Friday 15th February 2019 and will take place from 7:00pm to 7:00am on Saturday 16th February 2019.

Give up a night of comfort to experience the issues raised by those that sleep on the streets of Leeds but in a safe & secure environment.

Fundraise and take part in the challenge to raise funds for St George's Crypt which works with the homeless people of Leeds.

Their services rely heavily on the money that is generously donated and the funds that you could raise could help hundreds of people in Leeds. 

You can register today using this link


What does it involve?

You will be sleeping in front of the James Graham Building at our beautiful Headingley Campus. There is 24/7 security on site as well as staff who will be staying awake for any issues that you may face during the challenge.


How much do I need to fundraise?

We suggest that you aim for a minimum of £20. However, you can still take part if you do not manage to reach this target. Some students last year surpassed the £20 and raised hundreds which greatly helped the charity. We also award you with a certificate that says how much you raised!


How can you get involved?

Sign up as a group or on your own and join us on the evening. Sign up by completing the google form or email Sophie -
