The RSPB Big Sleep Out (June)
This year for the first time we took part in the RSPB sponsored sleep out. The children raised money by getting sponsored to sleep out in my garden under a gazebo.
We started the evening by taking a picnic tea to sleepy hollow woods, playing games and going on a bug hunt returning home at about 10 pm. The children got into their, onesies whilst I made hot chocolate, they then took turns roasting marsh-mellows in the chiminea before settling down in their sleeping bags for a night out. Some of them witnessed dawn, others were still asleep but were all awake by 6 am. We all enjoyed breakfast together before parents arrived.
We raised £245 for the RSPB!
