Stay Up Event


STAY:UP and stand up to youth homelessness in Scotland

Over 800 young people across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire are homeless or at risk of homelessness this year alone.

This is a shocking statistic, with many young people facing uncertainty and worry, whether sleeping rough, on sofas or in hostels. Covid-19 is also creating more risk to young people than ever before. But…..

Together we can help crush this!

Join us on the 9th of October as we challenge you to STAY:UP all night to help young people in Scotland who are experiencing homelessness.

Whether you STAY:UP solo or as part of a team, the challenge is simple: tackle your tiredness, fight the fatigue, banish bedtime and whatever you do, don’t fall asleep!

Take on the challenge of a night-time with your friends, family or colleagues and cycle, walk, quiz, dance or paint ‘til morning.

However you STAY:UP, your one night without sleep will help a homeless young person and could turn their life around forever. Will you be #UpForTheNight ?

THE CHALLENGE: Stay up all night

Date:  9th October 2020
Time: 8pm-8am
Location: wherever you don’t lay your head!
Fundraising Target: £100… and up! 

We‘re asking people to aim to raise £100 each, but this is entirely up to you, every penny counts and will make a huge difference to the lives of the young people we support.

We recommend using JustGiving for raising sponsorship online.

When you’ve registered you’ll receive a special STAY:UP fundraising pack to support you with fundraising ideas and activities to help you through the night. We’ll also be sharing tips throughout the night and putting on some fun activities you may want to take part in.

We’ll also keep you updated with how your support is making a difference to young people near you, so you know exactly how your amazing support has helped young people within Aberdeen City and shire.
