NEARLY 100 people slept outside for the night to raise money for vulnerable young people.
The novel event saw participants brave the cold streets outside the Southampton Guildhall and they managed to raise over £16,000.
Organisers, YMCA Fairthorne Group said the aim was to help prevent homelessness among young people.
The rough sleepers built shelters out of cardboard boxes to provide shelter for the night.
YMCA group’s Corin Ball said: “Over 70 people signed up for this event. We want to help the state of homelessness among young people of the city.
“You can help the vulnerable lead a healthy life, happy future by donating now.”
Local businesses like Asda, Costa and RS1 Security donated products and services like first aid, food & drinks and security.
The event ended with music presented by Southampton Ukulele Jam.
