Vision West Notts Students Prepare For ‘Big Snooze’ Event To Support Framework Charity

Student’s from Mansfield’s Vision West Nottinghamshire College are set to support homelessness charity Framework, in this years “Big Snooze Event” which will take place in March.

This morning Students from the college had the opportunity to learn more about the charity and heard from Pam Bishop who created the Big Snooze campaign over a decade ago, she explained how she hoped people would react to taking part.

“You go home in the morning to a hot shower and a breakfast and I think the experience doesn’t leave you – it’s life changing. You don’t walk by homeless people on the streets anymore and not feel that you can either offer them something – a smile, some goods, or even a thought and a prayer”

Hoping to raise over £25,000 for the charity, Vision West Notts expect over 250 students to participate in the event, which will take place at the college’s Derby Road campus on 24th March.

The event will see students and staff take part in the outdoor sleepover, which will have an Woodland Animal theme.
