FOUR men have helped raise almost £5,000 for a Bradford charity by sleeping rough in a church car park for a night.

Andrew Thorlby - along with friends Angus, Tony, and Andy - slept out at St Peter's Church, in Shipley on Friday night.

They were raising money for the homeless charity The Immanuel Project.

Mr Thorlby said: "Sleeping bags, bivvy bags and as many layers of clothing as we could fit on kept us mostly warm and dry on a night with wind, rain, and temperatures that dropped to four degrees."

The Immanuel Project currently operates from its community hub on Westgate, in Bradford city centre.

From Monday to Friday, they provide breakfast, hot lunches, snacks, teas, and coffee to up to 150 people every day.

Their hub provides a warm, welcoming, safe, and secure environment, supported by a team of volunteers.
