With nearly 300 people signed up and preparing to bed down in Deepdale there’s less than a month until the Big PNE Sleep Out.Advertisement
Raising vital funds for The Foxton Centre, PNE fans and kind-hearted Prestonians alike are being urged to register.
Friday November 1 is the deadline to get yourself signed up to take part in the Sleep Out.
The event, on Friday November 15, aims to raise £50,000 for the Housing First initiative. The funds will go towards buying a house to ensure rough sleepers have a roof over their head. More than £8,000 has already been pledged in donations ahead of the event (thank you!).
During Tuesday October 15 the Sleep Out team took a look round the Kop end to see where we’ll be sleeping.
It was chilly on the concourse even before we get into mid-November.
