You can help raise vital funds for charity with Kip on the Kop

07/09/2020

Kip On The Kop takes place on Friday 9th October at Prenton Park, home of Tranmere Rovers and is designed to raise funds and awareness around the plight of the homeless and vulnerable in the Merseyside area.

Participants will be encouraged to bring their sleeping bags and sleep out for night with friends and family on Prenton Park’s Kop. The last two KOTK’s have been fantastic events and have brought lots of people together – all dedicated to helping support the region’s rough sleepers.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event will be a little different and will be organised with social distancing in place. We will also have hand sanitising stations as well as a raft of other health and safety measures to ensure our participants are well protected from risk.

Kip on the Couch

For those that can’t make the KOTK sleepout, we have arranged something very special for this year’s event – Kip on the Couch where participants will be encouraged to get involved at home.

Bed down with us for charity as we introduce the entirely unique (and very fun) ‘Kip on the Couch’ – like Kip on the Kop but all done from the comfort of your own home! Just pick a date to bed down for one night on your couch, floor or in your garden!

We will also have participants from Tranmere Rovers Football Club taking part and covering their experiences via social media – we encourage you to do the same. Just make sure you tag us in and we’ll share your experiences to the social media channels of Wirral Ark, Paul Lavelle Foundation and Tranmere Rovers.

Kip on the Couch can take place on any evening you choose, between now and 10th October.

Registration is free with a recommended minimum sponsorship target of £20 per person, although we do ask that you try to raise as much as you can.  Participants provide their own warm clothing and sleeping bag.

Whether you build a den in your living room or camp out in the garden, our sleep out at home is open to the whole family. Fundraising packs download links & info will be sent out to participants once registered.

Please contact fundraising@wirralark.org.uk with any queries

Event coverage and fundraising

All charities involved in the event will be live streaming and posting throughout the night to show how the event is going and get the stories of the people involved in the sleepout. We will also be hoping to raise money through online and multi-media donations during the course of the event. Donation buttons will be posted on the night and in the lead up.
