Sleepout 2015




Winter Sleep Out 2015

A big thank you to everyone who braved the elements (it was very cold!) at our annual SLEEP OUT in 2015.

By joining us participants showed solidarity with the homeless and raised funds to support our Street Outreach service. We are on course to raise £5,000, which is a fantastic effort and much needed.

We are always interested in hearing from anyone who would want to take part - at any time of year. Alternatively we want to work with community groups, clubs, schools or companies to develop your own specific Sleep Out to help support the homeless.

You can make a valuable contribution – so please contact us by emailing



On the 17 May 2014 participants took part in a river-ridge relay organised on behalf of Threshold. The course took them across the scenic Thames Path and Ridgeway encompassing 9 stages of cycling and running, finishing in Swindon; a total of 78 miles.

The idea for this event was inspired by an ex-serviceman from Swindon, who had become homeless and having hit ‘rock bottom’ he found himself on Tower Bridge and was on the verge of jumping into the river and ending it all. A passer-by spent some time talking to him and convinced him to go home. This he did by walking the entire distance from London to Swindon. The man, with our support, went on to hold down a job and live in accommodation with a secure tenancy.

It took him days to walk all the way but it took our supporters a couple of hours raising vital funds for us. Well done and thanks to all those who took part.

Threshold’s run4home started as one man’s long journey back from the edge.

Threshold have made that journey again and again for a number of years to raise funds to provide vital services to Swindon’s homeless.
