I’m worried about raising funds...

We ask everyone taking part in Sleep Over to aim to raise as much as they can; we know that this can seem daunting, but we’ll give you plenty of support to smash your fundraising target!

We’ll provide you with a fundraising pack and resources full of hints and tips on how you can smash your target, and we’ll be there to support you all the way! We’ll also send you information on how your fundraising will make a real and lasting change to the lives of the people supported by Llamau.

Your fundraising changes lives and we couldn’t continue providing our vital services without you!

Can I bring my sponsorship money on the night?

Yes, you can bring your sponsorship money on the night; please make sure you give it to a member of Llamau staff and get a receipt so that we know to attribute the donation to you and/or your team.

Why do you need to know if I have any existing medical conditions?

When you register we ask if you have an existing medical condition that would affect your ability to take part in the event. This is so that in the unlikely scenario that you need help from our onsite first aiders, we can make sure they know of any existing medical conditions you may have. The information you give us is kept completely confidential, and is only shared with the first aiders at the event.

Why do you need an emergency contact name and number?

In the very unlikely case that you will become ill or you want to go home but are unable to drive or use public transport, we will call your emergency contact so that they’re aware of how you are and can come and support you.

Are there any age limits to taking part?

Sleep Over is an event for 8-16 year olds and their responsible adults.

Are we sleeping on the pitch?

The event will take place in the concourse of Principality Stadium, and outside the concourse in a fenced off area. You will not be able to go onto the pitch.

Why is alcohol not allowed at the Sleep Over?

Sleep Over is an event aimed at children and young people, therefore we are not allowing anyone to bring alcohol to the event to ensure the safety of the young people taking part.

What safety precautions do you take to make sure everyone sleeping outside kept are safe?

We have professional first aiders at the event in case of any emergencies. The Sleep Zone is fenced and secure, and is patrolled by Llamau staff all night to ensure no unauthorised people can get in.

Staff patrolling the sleep zone will check up on sleeping participants to make sure they are safe, and if you see or hear anything that concerns you please let us know as soon as possible.

Is Sleep Over a realistic experience of street homeless?

Our mission is to eradicate homelessness in Wales, with our focus being on early intervention and prevention to ensure that nobody has to endure sleeping on the street.

Can I bring my dog? 

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to bring your dog with you due to potential allergies that your fellow participants may have.

How well will I be able to sleep?

Sleep Over is a lot of fun, but it is not easy. It will be cold, and it might be wet. Some of your fellow participants may find it difficult to sleep and will stay up chatting in the sleep zone, they may keep you awake. We will do our best to remind participants to be considerate of anyone trying to sleep.

What can I bring to make the Sleep Over more comfortable?

We would recommend that you bring lots of layers of warm clothes, waterproof clothing, a sleeping bag, a ground sheet, a bed roll, any medications you may need, and cash for the food vendors.
