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.

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.
Others set up camp outside, and then the rain came
