Friday 26th October – Sunday 28th October Chipping Campden town car park
Slum Survivor is a national campaign organised by the charity Soul Action. Slum Survivor is a challenge to spend a weekend in the way that a billion spend a lifetime. The idea is that for a short time you choose to make the world’s poor your reality, raising money for change and being changed in the process.
The Chipping Campden weekend is being organised by jointly by St. James’ Church Youth Project, Shipston on Stour Churches Youth Project and Chipping Campden Baptist Church.
Youngsters will live in a self-created slum for the weekend to raise awareness in the town of the plight of so many. They will learn about life for the world’s poor, face challenges, eat a limited diet and gain sponsorship with the monies raised going to the work of Soul Action partner projects working in poor communities throughout the world.
