What is The Big Sleep In?

We all know a good night's sleep is good for our mental health so as part of Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 The Cart Shed is asking you to get some kip and help us raise money to support young people and adults in Herefordshire suffering with their mental health.

How to get involved

  • Find somewhere fun and exciting to sleep for a night this May.
  • Start a Virgin Donate Fundraising Page
  • Ask you friends and family to sponsor you.
  • Follow the campaign online #TheBigSleepIn
  • Get a good night’s sleep.
  • Wake up feeling great knowing you’ve helped us and your own mental health.

Where could I sleep?

That’s really up to you but here are some ideas to get you started, just make sure you are safe and that someone knows where you are and what you are planning.

  • Sleep in the bath, in the dog’s bed, in your school clothes
  • Pitch a tent
  • Build a den
  • Hold a virtual sleep over
