Events, Rallies and SOTHO
Events, rallies and Sleep Out to Help Out initiatives are important social gatherings for the CAMpRA motorcaravan members. Not only are they a chance to meet up and discuss the latest Aires to open and tips on how to get started, we can also share stories of our touring experiences in the UK. It is also a great opportunity to relax and unwind and just enjoy the surroundings that we find ourselves in. Having the chance to talk to like minded people and get away from the day to day drudgery of our lives has an enormous mental health benefit.
Key events for this year will be the Warner shows where we hope to meet up with some of our members.

Sleep Out to Help Out (SOTHO) Rallies
What is Sleep Out to Help Out?
Started in response to the UK Goverment’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, the Sleep Out to Help Out initiative was CAMpRA’s way of meeting up socially and not only supporting some of the industries worst hit by the pandemic, but also to demonstrate how the creation of Aires could actually be of benefit to the local communities.
These Sleep Out to Help Out initiatives have become very popular and are now organised under guidance provided by the events team.
