Kicking off on 9 December, Sleep in the Park will be the world’s largest ever sleepout, with thousands of people signing up to sleep in the cold for the night and help raise money for the homeless.

The online fundraiser is being run by itison. The charity prize draw is live now and can be entered here.

All money raised will be donated to Social Bite in their bid to help end homelessness.

Josh Littlejohn, founder of Social Bite said: “The line-up for Sleep in the Park is amazing and this fundraiser is taking it to the next level by giving you and a pal the chance to hang out backstage and grab a drink with the stars. So far over 6,000 people have signed up to sleep out so we’re well on track to hit our target of 9,000 – it’s brilliant to see so many people getting behind it.”

Oli Norman, CEO of itison said: “Together with our members, we’ve raised over £1m for Social Bite and we’re delighted to continue supporting the great work they’re doing with not one, but three brilliant money can’t buy prizes giving our members the chance to get up and close with their icons.”

As well as Liam, John and Deacon Blue, a whole host of other artists are taking part including Sir Bob Geldof, Rob Brydon, Frightened Rabbit and Amy MacDonald.
