Events 2023

Fundraising events are an important way for us to help raise funds to keep our vital services running. We have been at the front line of helping people in need across Milton Keynes the need for our services continues to grow. Over the last 12 months our welfare team have had a record caseload and we help around 200 people each week accessing support services at Unity Park Station, our day centre in the old bus station.

So whether you would like to run a marathon, attend a comedy night, or take part in the Big Sleepout, keep an eye on this page for all the latest events. 


24-hour Hidden Homeless Challenge in aid of WNSMK

This winter join our ’24 Hour Hidden Homeless Challenge’ and raise funds to support Winter Night Shelter MK’s work with homeless people in our community. 

Why this challenge? Homelessness is easier to hide than you would think. There will be people we all see regularly at work, school or socially, who we will have no idea are living without a safe place to call their own.
How do I do the challenge? To highlight the rising level of ‘hidden homelessness’ in Milton Keynes, we are encouraging people to take part our ‘Hidden Homeless Challenge’. The idea is to get together with your co-workers, club members, friends or family and gain sponsorship for sleeping away from your home and managing without day-to-day luxuries. This could include organising to sleep in your office or school hall overnight and living on the bare minimum of food, drink, and comforts as possible. We hope is that this will give a slight insight in to the conditions some people are finding themselves faced with, whilst also raising valuable funds to ensure that we can be there to support individuals and families that need our help.
How do I sign up? You can take part anytime from now until the end of March 2023. For more details and to sign up, please contact or visit our Hidden Homeless challenge Just Giving page…/wnsmk-hiddenhomelesschallenge
