Warwick School boys hold Sleep Out event for charity

NEARLY 100 Warwick School students slept in cardboard boxes as part of a Sleep Out event to raise money for charity.

The boys built their own cardboard shelter and used some plastic bags and tape to make them as waterproof as possible.

The event was planned to raise funds for a good cause and allowed the Year 7s to have fun together whilst appreciating a little of what it means to be homeless.

They hoped to raise over £2,000 for the Helping Hands charity.

A variety of physically and mentally challenging activities took place including gootball, cricket, a quiz, and a “return to base” style wide-game.

A late night chapel service was held reflecting on the work of Helping Hands Community Project in Leamington Spa which Warwick School is once again supporting.

Soup was served by the Head Master Gus Lock, at 11.30pm before the boys settled into their boxes to face the challenge of a night of sleeping outside. The rain held off just long enough to give the boys a dry night under the stars, before an early 4am rise with the sun.
