The Big Imagine Sleepout

This year we are excited to be partnering with Imagine to host the The Big Imagine Sleepout 2017, in aid of New Hope. Located at Fullerians Rugby Club on the 17th November, the event aims to raise awareness as well as vital funds to help those currently facing homelessness in Watford and the surrounding districts. 

We want you to come and join us on the 17th to spend the night beneath the stars exposed to the elements. Right now, there are an estimated 40 people are currently facing the same situation every night in Watford. We are asking you to give up just one night of your time, to help make a difference to those in need as they face the harsh conditions winter often brings.

Frugal Supper

Frugal Supper

We will be hosting a Frugal Supper for a limited number of guests on Friday 4th March at the Haven Support Centre (4 Whippendell Road, Watford, WD18 7LU). 

You are invited to join us for a formal dinner but, where you would normally expect to receive a three course meal, you will only be given a bowl of soup and some bread. The evening's entertainment will be provided by the fantastic Watford-based music group, Luxford.

At the end of the evening, guests will be asked to leave a donation of what they would expect to pay for a three course meal if they went out to a restaurant. 

The idea behind a frugal supper is to highlight the contrasts between those of us who are fortunate enough to afford a nice meal at a restaurant and someone who is homeless just being glad of a warming bowl of soup. 

To reserve a seat at the Frugal Supper please contact Nafisa on 01923 227 132 or email events@newhope.org.uk

Alternatively, why not run your own? If you have a church or community hall with a kitchen, you could put on a frugal supper there. Or you could approach a local hotel and ask them to host. All they need to do is provide the soup and bread.
