A number of Northampton Town Football Club staff slept rough at Sixfields on Friday night to support one of the club's official charity partners.
The event saw around 200 people sponsored to sleep rough for one night, to increase awareness of those being forced to sleep rough as well as raising important finances for the work of the Northampton Hope Centre, to help them keep supporting the homeless in Northampton.
“We have been working closely with the Hope Centre in various ways for several years,” said James Whiting.
“They do a tremendous job in providing vital help for homeless people and we were only too pleased to host this event."
“This is our main fund-raising event of the year and the money raised will go straight into the running of the Centre," said Tanya Haji-Miller from the Hope Centre.
“We are very grateful to Northampton Town Football Club for hosting this event and to their staff for taking part."
In all, the Cobblers staff raised approximately £3,500, but those wishing to can sponsor James can still do so at justgiving.com/fundraising/jameswhitingsleepout2018.
