Cathedral sleep-out to aid homeless.

THE plight of young homeless people will be highlighted during a sleep-out atDurham Cathedral.

The event will take place on Friday, February, 1 and is organised by youth homelessness charity Moving On and the Durham University Charities Kommittee (DUCK).

The charity is aiming to raise awareness of homelessness across County Durham and funds to support Moving On's work with young people.

Andrew Cowan, senior adviser at Moving On, said: "Homelessness in the North East often goes unseen by many. We hope that our event can show the impact it has on young people, but also highlight that there are organisations like us out there that can support people in getting their lives back on track."

The event is for people aged 18 years and over and a strict no alcohol policy will be in force.
