The Big PNE Sleep In invited the city to set up tents, camp and more to raise funds for The Foxton Centre.

Building on the success of the Big PNE Sleep Out at Deepdale in November this event was adapted for the lockdown.

Families joined in with tents being set up both inside and outside.

PNE striker Louis Moult joined in with his daughter’s from the living room floor.

The Foxton Centre said they had received around £2,500 from the Sleep In for much-needed funds to help support rough sleepers through the lockdown period.

Pictures were shared on social media using the hashtag #pnesleepin throughout Good Friday evening.
