Cloister challengeGloucester’s annual Cloister Challenge event returns to the Cathedral on 18 to 19 March 2022, raising money for the homeless and vulnerable.

The Cloister Challenge raises much-needed funds for local homeless charities each year.

The Cloister Challenge committee, part of the charity ‘HaVinG’, works in partnership with the Cathedral to provide those who take part with a snapshot of the challenges homeless people face, experiencing a night on the stone floor of Gloucester Cathedral’s cloister.

The event is now an annual inclusion in the Cathedral’s social responsibility programme. Canon Andrew Braddock, Chair of the Cathedral’s Social Responsibility Group said “Once again the Cloister Challenge will bring together people of all ages to raise both awareness and money to help support those in need.  We are delighted and proud of the sense of community the event creates and the generosity of all involved.”

Donations can be made directly to the Cloister Challenge via the event webpage so even those who aren’t sleeping out in the Cloister can still support homeless people in the City.
