Idyllic setting? Check. Delicious street food? Check. Sky full of stars? Check. It’s almost time for Let’s Feed Brum’s first summer fundraiser, which invites the city to sleep under the stars for one night only to raise money for the homeless.
On Sunday 2 July , Birmingham Botanical Gardens will be opening it’s stunning grounds to friends, families and fundraisers who will have the exclusive opportunity to call the gardens home for the night. To raise money for Let’s Feed Brum, proceeds from every ticket sold will go towards paying for a night in a hostel for a person that needs it.
Let’s Feed Brum’s first fundraiser Summer Sleepover will begin at 7 pm on Sunday 2 July and will run until 8 am on Monday 3 July. Atendees will be treated to entertainment throughout the evening by local performers, and as an extra treat, Brum’s most loved street food vendors will be selling food and drink.
Let’s Feed Brum aim is to bring Birmingham’s cafés, bars and restaurants together to help feed people in unfortunate circumstances. The project hopes that the city will come together to support it and to help their fellow man.
Since launching last October, they have built on Inspiration Support’s six years of work in providing food, drink, essential supplies and friendship to those living on our streets. By being out on the streets, Let’s Feed Brum is able to start conversations with those who are homeless and help signpost the fantastic services in place to tackle the ever-growing problem in Birmingham.
Commenting on the fundraiser, Ben Rafiqi, the founder of Let’s Feed Brum’s outreach project, said:
This is such a unique experience for the city, so the fact that we can offer it to the public, who have already been so supportive of Let’s Feed Brum, is fantastic.
The Summer Sleepover tickets are on sale now, priced at £20 for adults and £5 for children.
