Cobalt Sleep Out

Cobalt Sleep Out

Time: 7 p.m.-7 a.m.

Cobalt in partnership with EE are holding a Cobalt-wide sleepout to raise money for North East Homeless @ The Fish Quay Hub. 

We are challenging you to give up your bed for just one night, not to replicate what it is like to sleep rough but to give you an idea of the situation lots of people find themselves in on a daily basis. 

Bring your friends, work colleagues and family members to join in the sleep-out and help us raise as much money as we can.
