As part of Student Volunteering Week, students from Warwick’s Politics Society slept out in Coventry War Memorial Park this week to raise funds for the homeless.
Equipped only with sleeping bags, a sandwich and a bottle of water, 17 students were in the park from 8pm on Tuesday 26 February until 8am on Wednesday morning.
The group have now surpassed their original fundraising total, making over £3,000 for homeless charity Coventry Cyrenians.
Their fundraising page is still open and you can make a donation at: www.justgiving.com/teams/polsocsleepout2014
