Workers to host Sleepout to support for Women’s and Girl's Centre

BLACKTOWN Workers Club is hosting the CEO and Co Winter Sleep Out on June 23 to raise funds for the Blacktown Women’s and Girls’ Health Centre (BWGHC).
The goal is to raise $40,000 on the night. Not only is it a chance to raise much needed funds, but it is also the chance to enjoy a unique experience under the stars.
 
BWGHC is a community-based centre which provides accessible health and wellbeing services for women and girls in Blacktown LGA regardless of their income. 
 
They provide emergency crisis intervention and support for women and children, including domestic violence counselling and case management, emergency backpacks, food and overnight accommodation.
 
The centre also provides transport to and from destination then back to the centre for further assistance.
 
Women and children going through Domestic and Family Violence are at risk of homelessness which is a huge factor that may impact their wellbeing.
 
You have to be registered to take part in the Sleep Out. All participants will pay $50 and the donation includes a T-shirt and beanie to wear on the night.
 
Throughout the night, you will learn about BWGHC and how they aid girls, women, and their children, especially those in need of emergency accommodation so they are not left homeless.
 
There will be light entertainment and you will receive dinner, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. 
 
Once the official proceedings have concluded, you will be left to experience the night in the cold. 
 
With the weather predicted to be cold, participants should make sure they wear warm and comfortable clothing, bring a sleeping bag and a pillow. Electronic items such as mobile phones, tablets and cameras are welcome to capture your experience.
 
 
If you can’t go but wish to donate, please visit Workers Blacktown or follow this link:
