Gloucestershire families are camping out in their gardens to raise money for NHS charities

Families in Gloucestershire and across the UK are taking part in the Great British Campout this Friday, pitching their tents and donating to NHS Charities Together to show their support during the Coronavirus crisis.

To help raise money for NHS Charities Together, families in Gloucestershire and across the UK are taking part in the Great British Campout this Friday 10 April 2020.

Curated by a family from Nottinghamshire, the Great British Campout first started as a way to keep their kids entertained, but has since developed to a nationwide initiative to raise money for NHS Charities Together.

The first campout took place on Saturday 4 April 2020, with live entertainment such as music and yoga streaming through Facebook.

To take part in the next Great British Campout, donations of £2 or more can be made through its JustGiving page, which has impressively raised over £90,000 in total so far.

Get your tents pitched this Easter weekend, join in the fun and, to make a donation, visit justgiving.com/greatbritishcampout.


As part of SoGlos’s #InThisTogetherGlos campaign, to spread good news and positivity at this challenging time, we will share some of the fun, joyful photos taken by readers in Gloucestershire on our Coronavirus lockdown diary.
