More than 100 kind-hearted people braved freezing temperatures to raise money for charity.

A total of 150 people, some as young as 12, slept rough for Wycombe Homeless Connection’s Big Sleepout at Adams Park.

TV star James Corden, a former Hazlemere resident, lent his support to the sleepout this year by filming a video clip encouraging people to take part in the charity’s biggest fundraiser.

And Chairboys fans were given the unique opportunity this year to stay overnight at the Wanderers’ home for the charity.

The evening at the football ground kicked off with a warm welcome from Wycombe Wanderers chairman Trevor Stroud, and charity ambassador and Chairboys defender Michael Harriman. A bowl of chilli con carne was provided and ‘sleepouters’ joined in a quiz on the night.

Resident Jane Smith was the highest fundraiser, raising a total of £1,937 for the charity and youngsters Jamie Nuttall, Ieuan Baker and Ben Senior, all aged 13 drummed up a total of £1,276 between them.

Other ‘sleepouters’ included Wycombe MP Steve Baker, Wycombe district councillor Maz Hussain and Robert Sales, who won a bid to spend the night on a double bed provided by Dreams, which is also sponsoring this year’s event.

A sleepout was also held in Marlow and organisers say the two combined are likely to have raised around £60,000.

Sheena Dykes, chair of trustees at Wycombe Homeless Connection, said: “We have been overwhelmed by the support of so many people this weekend.

“The money raised will make a huge difference to the work we are able to do.”
