In the past


For a number of years Stay has hosted the annual “Stay Out” fundraiser to raise money and awareness of homelessness within the borough of Telford and Wrekin.

The event has involved members of the public, local businesses. clubs and community groups coming together armed with cardboard boxes, tents, sleeping bags and any other items suitable for spending a night out on the street. 

Participants have created their own home for a night out of the items brought with them, bedding down in a car park and braving the cold overnight temperatures that many face on a night by night basis.

Collecting sponsorship from friends and family, everyone taking part has helped fund the much-needed accommodation and support provided by Stay.

The contribution of Stay-Telford to the local community has been incredibly valuable throughout its long existence.


Like Stay, Maninplace has offered its own annual fundraiser, “Carry the load”.  The aim of this event was to raise money and awareness of those sleeping rough in our borough, and to celebrate the work being done to offer emergency and temporary accommodation to those in need.

The event involved a sponsored walk from Wellington to Telford Town Centre carrying a mattress, or other bedding items for those less able to carry heavy mattresses.

To add an extra element of fun to the event, fancy dress themes were added.
