Whatever your interest, skill level, schedule, we've got an event for you! Check out our full year calendar and take the first step in helping us end youth homelessness.
Sleep Easy 2023
Sleep Easy is a fundraising event where we ask you to give up your bed for one night, in support of young people facing the terrifying experience of homelessness every day of the year.
Take part in your own time (simply sleep anywhere but your own bed). There’s no minimum amount to raise but every pound you do could turn a person's life around.
Registration free: £0
Sponsorship minimum: £0
Difficulty: A fun event with a serious purpose, where you can help us raise awareness of the challenges homelessness can bring
9th March 2024 or 7th September 2024
We're once again teaming up with GoSkydive in Salisbury to offer our supporters the incredible experience of a tandem skydive. There is no experience like it… Everyone should do a skydive at least once and perhaps this is your opportunity. Before taking to the skies, Go Skydive explain the importance of safety, what to expect and teach you how to do the perfect landing!
There is nothing like the exhilaration of hitting a freefall speed of 125mph before pulling the parachute and floating slowly down with only the wind in your ears. It is something you’ll never forget. Are you brave enough to join us?
To sign up on the Go Skydive website click 'find out more'. Book your place by entering 'YMCA DownsLink Group' as your selected charity.
Registration free: £50
Sponsorship minimum: £395
Difficulty: Actually much easier than you think!
