After the huge success of the first Big PNE Sleep Out in 2019, Preston North End is opening its doors again and inviting Prestonians to sleep out and raise essential funds for The Foxton Centre.
Based in the heart of the city, The Foxton Centre works with Preston’s most vulnerable residents – providing a wide range of services. This year, the Big PNE Sleep Out’s goal is to raise £50k for The Foxton Day Centre, based on Fox Street, to provide food, warmth and activities for its users.
Taking place overnight on Friday 17th November 2023, participants will be encouraged to raise as much sponsorship as possible to spend the night on the pitch of the PNE football ground, with only the cardboard, kindly provided by Veoila, and whatever supplies they can carry. They will be greeted with a much-welcome breakfast roll and a brew in the morning, similar to that offered to attendees of the Day Centre.
There will be an option to participate at home for those who are unable to attend – why not arrange small event with a couple of friends, or at your school, college or community centre for a bigger crowd?
Businesses will also be invited to get involved, either by taking part, sponsoring individuals or offering “in-kind” donations. If you want to sponsor the event, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want to participate in the event by raising funds, go to register here (ticket entry is free) and we’ll send you a fund raising pack so you can get started.
