James Corden supports Big Sleepout at Adams Park

TV star records message of encouragement for those involved in event for Wycombe Homeless Connection.

29 October 2018

TV personality James Corden has shown his support for the Dreams Big Sleepout at Adams Park for Wycombe Homeless Connection, which takes place on Saturday 24th November.

The star of the Late Late Show in the USA filmed a short message of support for the event, which will see more than 100 people sleep in the stands of the Chairboys' home whilst raising money for the charity.

Raised locally in the Wycombe area, and once a regular attendee of Wanderers matches, Corden has a connection with the charity through his family and was happy to encourage people to take part in the Sleepout and sponsor those involved.

The Sleepout - sponsored by Dreams Beds - takes place on the evening of Saturday 24th November, following the League 1 game between Wycombe and Shrewsbury at Adams Park.

It was initiated by Wanderers defender Michael Harriman, who - along with his wife Amy - became ambassadors for the charity earlier this year following a visit to the night shelter in High Wycombe.

Kicking off with a quiz in the Caledonian Suite - which is open to all - the event then invites participants to set up their makeshift bed in the Beechdean Stand before braving the wintry conditions throughout the night.

WWFC officials are getting behind the event by throwing in a free match ticket for any participant who raises at least £20 sponsorship.

Families with children (over 12) will be welcome to join in this year for the first time. There will also be a supper available at the quiz, and those who do take part in the Sleepout will be rewarded by hot drinks and breakfast in the morning.

More information can be found at www.wyhoc.org.uk. Registration is now open for participants, and places are limited to 150, so readers are encouraged to act fast to secure their Adams Park bed for the night.
