Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is delighted to announce that Trinity Under the Stars will return this November from the Be Well Support Stadium.
The maiden year of the event in 2022 was a resounding success, with over 25 participants braving the cold weather to spend a night inside the Stadium, raising over £3500 for the Foundation and Helping the Homeless Wakefield.
According to data published at the start of 2023, it was estimated that 2,101 people were Homeless on any given night through the year across West Yorkshire, with 657 of those sleeping on the streets of Wakefield.
With the alarming figures revealed, Wakefield Trinity is keen, once again, to try and make a difference, partnering with a range of organisations to host ‘Trinity Under the Stars’ again in 2023.
Supported by Wakefield Street Kitchen, Local Vocals Choir, Amber Falls and proudly sponsored by XBM Ltd, the evening will consist of food, music, guest speakers and quizzes, with the Foundation inviting members of the community to support in the fight against Homelessness.
To further show solidarity, the Foundation will be asking schools, businesses and participants to bring in any unwanted dried or tinned food, which will be donated to Wakefield Street Kitchen as they continue their service of hot meals every Wednesday.
The event will take place at the Be Well Support Stadium from Friday 24th to Saturday 25th November, with participants invited to arrive from 7pm onwards.
A sponsorship target of £100 has been set, with all funds going straight to the Foundation’s work in the community & Helping the Homeless Wakefield as they bid to help people get off the street.
The event will be for those aged 12+, with anyone under 18 being accompanied by an adult unless the Foundation receives written consent.
