Taking place overnight on Friday, November 17 2023, participants will spend the night on the pitch of Deepdale Stadium.
As part of its 30-year celebrations this year, Begbies Traynor said they wanted to support the Foxton Centre, a local registered charity in Preston which looks to provide support and assistance to vulnerable adults in the local area, with a focus on rough sleepers and the homeless.
The support provided has already seen Begbies Traynor donating funding towards the Foxton Centre’s breakfast scheme for the city’s vulnerable adults.
Chris Lawton, partner at Begbies Traynor in Preston, said: “We selected The Foxton Centre as our local charity partner earlier this year to help raise funds and awareness for the wonderful work it does in our local community.
“The centre is close to our office in Preston and we’ve developed a brilliant relationship with them. Begbies Traynor is delighted to support this flagship charity event in the heart of Preston.”
Carole Vizzard, Business Development Manager at Begbies Traynor, added: “We are only too happy to spend a night sleeping out if it helps raise awareness and encourage donations for this vital local charity. We’re also encouraging others in Preston’s professional services community to take part and we hope to see as many people as possible on the night.”
Jeff Marsh, CEO of The Foxton Centre, said: “We are really pleased to have the Begbies Traynor team join us for the Big PNE Sleep Out. It means a lot to us to have the support of businesses who work in the city centre.
“Every pound raised will help us better support some of Preston’s most vulnerable residents, providing them with warmth, food and activities from the Foxton Day Centre.”
