A NATIONWIDE event held by Helping Homeless Veterans UK will highlight the veterans in our country who do not have a place to call home.

The Big Sleep 2020 invites people across the UK to sleep anywhere but their own beds for one night to raise awareness of the veterans hidden away in hostels and B&Bs or sofa surfing with family and friends.

The event hopes to raise money as well as awareness to help the not for profit Community Interest Company continue its vital work within the community.

The Big Sleep will take place from June 13 at 9pm to the morning of June14.
