Can you hack a night out sleeping under the stars to raise money for CATH?

Go on – you know you can!

CATH needs numbers to join in the Sleep Out and raise much needed funds.  The homeless community is facing a tough winter and CATH needs to be there to help them.

The Harold Tomlins Centre is a vital resource that receives little statutory funding, relying almost entirely on the goodwill of the Chester community.  We cannot thank them enough for that.  But we do need continual support.

The centre offers a huge array of support services 52 weeks of the year.  It is essential that it continues to provide a much needed safety net for those unfortunate enough to find themselves without a roof.

Please join us for the evening.  To enrol and request as sponsorship pack please call 01244 314834 or email
