Stars give up mattresses for charity

Celebrities have slept out in London in order to raise money for a homelessness charity.

Centrepoint, which helps young people, organised an event in the east of the city to increase awareness and generate cash for its activities.

A number of stars took part in the sleep out, which happened in cold conditions on the night of Friday November 11th in Spitalfields Market.

Around 400 people forewent their mattresses in order to attend the sixth edition of the annual event, including Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, actress and Loose Women presenter Lisa Maxwell, DJ Sara Cox, Big Brother winner Craig Phillips, singer and presenter Mica Paris and The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie.

Head of Centrepoint Seyi Obakin stated: “It’s great that so many people have pledged to give up their beds for the night to experience a small slice of sleeping rough.”

Founded in 1969, Centrepoint aims to help young people meet their full potential.
