Big Snore fundraisers

FUNDRAISERS as young as four slept rough for the night to highlight the plight of Mansfield’s homeless and Framework, the charity that works for them.

The volunteers raised more than £20,000 at the annual Big Snore’s new home, Mansfield Town Football Club’s One Call Stadium. The money will be used to help people move on from Framework’s Sherwood Street accommodation centre into lodgings of their own and make space for those on the waiting list for help. Framework thanked the football club and event sponsors Western Power Distribution (pictured).

Among those sleeping rough were John Coxhead, who raised more than £3,000; Coun Martin Lee; Mansfield MP Alan Meale; Miss Mansfield and Sherwood Forest Jessica Boot; and a team from the Coal Authority.

The boxfactor competition was won by Kevin D’Mello and Mandy Moth for illuminated kennel-style designs.
