FUNDRAISERS from across Mansfield and Ashfield experienced sleeping rough for the night on Friday to highlight the work done by Framework for the homeless and to raise cash for the charity.

The Big Snore at St Mark’s Church was held as temperatures fell as low as minus 6 on one of the coldest nights of the year.

Local fundraisers braved the sub-zero temperatures on Friday night to take park in The Big Snore at Mansfield's St Marks Church. Mansfield MP Sir Alan Meale joined eight young people aged from 11-17 from Mansfield's St Lawrences Youth Group who were taking part in the event for the third time.
