The Big Tent Night
The Dignity Big Tent Night is a really fun way for the children (and grown-ups!) to connect with overseas mission. You can join in and make a difference in the lives of people like Margaret and Josephine. Watch this video to find out more.
You can take part in the Big Tent Night on your own, with your friends or even with your church.
5 simple steps to making a difference
- Pick a date for your Big Tent Night.
- Invite some friends to join you or speak to your church about doing it all together in church. You can use this letter to share the idea with your church.
- Get your tent out of the garage or shed (or build a den if you don’t have a tent!)
- Spend your “Big Tent Night” sleeping in your tent. Ask your friends and family to support people like Margaret and Josephine with you by making a donation to Dignity. You can use this donation sheet to help with this.
- Let us know you are taking part, tell us how you get on. Speak to Gill or Jo in our office on +44 (0) 161 434 8841 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You could even send us a photo if you are happy to share one with us. Return the donation sheet and the donations (Dignity, 6 Barlow Moor Road, Didsbury, Manchester, M20 6TR).
