About

PC Liz Stanton and the Cheshire Crimebeat Charity Co-ordinator, Mark Watson, have undertaken a unique opportunity to experience a night in the shoes of many children and young people across Cheshire and the UK who are homeless or forced to sleep rough for all sorts of reasons. We've done it on the night before Children in Need and now have just some idea of what it is like - cold, wet and windy in our case. Thank you so much to all who have donated, you have been wonderfully kind. There are now a few photos from the night attached.

Event details

Sleeping Rough in Crewe

The number of people in the UK who are homeless or forced to sleep rough in any place they can find has risen every year since 2010. Being homeless and having to sleep rough is particularly disastrous for children and young people and that is why our small team from Cheshire Constabulary and Cheshire Crimebeat have experienced one night of the sort of life that too many people suffer night after night after night. The event took place in Queens Park, Crewe overnight on Thursday 12 November and was organised by the Children's Society and the Cheshire East Participation Network. All money raised will go to the BBC Children in Need appeal. We had our cardboard, tarpaulin, bin bags and string and we made it through - pictures attached! It is the 21st Century and having to sleep rough if you are a child or young person should have no place in this country. Please help us to try and improve things by donating what you can. Anything you can give is much appreciated by all of us.
