The Foxton Centre is opening its doors on Sunday December 15 for the Big PNE Sleep Out pay-in.

Between 11am and 2pm you can come along and pay in any cash you’ve collected for the sleep out.

The sleep out at Deepdale Stadium took place on Friday November 15 and so far has seen more than £50,000 raised in online donations – smashing the target set.

More than 300 people bedded down on cardboard in the Kop concourse to raise money and awareness of homelessness.

It’s also a good chance to make goods donations to the Foxton ahead of the Christmas period. The centre looks for non-perishable foods, clothes, clean underwear and toiletries in particular are in demand.
