The sleep out raises awareness of homelessness and raises funds for several local homelessness charities.

Last year over 500 people of all ages took part in the charity’s biggest fundraising event of the year.

Helen Snowden, LAMP’s fundraising officer, said: “The event is well organised with everyone taking place given a security band, everyone taking part sleeps within the railings around the Abbey and there is security on all entrances and exits.

“The Abbey opens its cafe all night, providing free soup and hot drinks and access to toilets.”

The event starts at 9pm and finishes at 7am. For more information contact Helen on 01582 431744.
