The JCT600 concourse will be packed with 140 people tonight to raise money for Centrepoint Bradford - and there’s still time to sponsor the event!
Tonight, the Northern Commercials Stadium will host it’s second Sleep Out to raise funds for Centrepoint.
Last year, the annual fundraising event raised over £30,000 for Centrepoint Bradford, a charity who support 150 homeless young people aged 16-25 in our city every day.
Two members of City’s off-field team – Paula Watson and Isabel Pitts – will be swapping their beds for the concrete floor to help Centrepoint Bradford introduce Centrepoint Sport Training Centre Programme in Bradford.
Centrepoint Sport is a programme which uses Street Football to improve the emotional wellbeing, resilience, motivation and self-confidence of young people who are homeless or at risk and turn their lives around.
As part of signing up for the event, Paula Watson and Isabel Pitts - members of City’s off-field team - have created an online donation page which goes straight to the charity.

All of the funds raised will go straight to Centrepoint who support 150 homeless young people aged 16-25 in Bradford every single day.
The event is a great way to learn about Centrepoint and the work they do. There will be food, a bar and live music throughout the night to help the participants settle for the night.
While Sleep Out doesn’t aim to replicate homelessness, it does give you an insight into the challenges faced by those sleeping rough.
A couple of weeks ago, the Oakwell Stadium hosted ‘Sleep Out Barnsley’ and raised over £32,000.
The Club would like to thank all of those who have sponsored the event so far!
