It‘s all the rage...

It seems that sleeping out to raise money for rough sleepers is all the rage, both sides of the Atlantic. A week doesn't go by without a report of a group taking their camping gear onto the streets to raise funds for homeless organisations

However, the YMCA in Watford, Hertfordshire, added to this established fundraising formula, running a competition for the "Best DressedCardboard Box." The event held at Watford Football Club on 26 February, dubbed the 'Sleep Easy', promoted itself with the competition, which had a hot water bottle as first prize.
