World's Big Sleep Out: Thousands support homelessness charities

World's Big Sleep Out: Thousands support homelessness charities
BBC:

Thousands of people have camped out overnight as part of a global effort to raise cash to tackle homelessness.

Celebrities were among the hundreds taking part in the World's Big Sleep Out in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff.

Organisers were expecting more than 50,000 to take part globally, with other events in cities including New York, Brisbane and Dublin.

The initiative hopes to raise around £38m ($50m) for homelessness charities.

In London's Trafalgar Square, those camping out faced temperatures of about 10C and heavy rain - conditions which supporters said rough sleepers face every day.Dame Louise Casey, a former head of the government rough sleepers' unit and trustee of the Big Sleep Out, told the BBC she hoped the event would be "symbolic".

"It seems absolutely bloody crackers right now - the rain is so heavy - but we're doing it because basically the world has a homelessness problem, it has a displaced people problem, it has refugees," Dame Louise said.

"All of these people are here tonight walking in the shoes of people who are homeless, or people who are refugees, we're just experiencing something for one minute, we're experiencing something that people have to experience all year round."It is a privilege to be here this evening - wet and cold as it is."
