Panorama showing Old Spittlefield Market at the beginning of the Big City Sleep fundraising event which I went to to raise money for the work ABC Trust is doing with street children in Brazil. This area was where 50 or so people would sleep out for the night.

The Big City Sleep is a fundraising event to raise money for work amongst vulnerable children around the world. For the last six years, ABC Trust has been involved in this because of it's work in the favelas of Brazil. This year, the event was once again hosted by Old Spittlefield Market in London.
In 2014, about 50 people convened on part of the site, temporarily converting it into a card board city. Unlike the homeless children, Big City Sleep participants were watched over by security for the night. The early part of the evening included Brazilian dance lessons, a silent disco, silent Brazilian film and a chance to do some graffiti.
