People have been challenged to stay awake all night for an online fundraiser for a charity.
The STAY:UP event to raise money to tackle youth homelessness is a joint initiative between The Benjamin Foundation and End Youth Homelessness.
Anyone is invited to take part in the event, which costs £5 per household with participants asked to aim to raise £100 in sponsorship, on Friday October, 10.
It has replaced the annual Sleep Out event, which sees people spend the night in a Norwich location, due to coronavirus.
Matt Garrod, director of operations, said: “Sleep Out in the usual format isn’t possible this year, which has potential to have a huge impact on our charity’s income. We urge local people and businesses to back the event to continue to help local young people.”
