Dorset homeless charity supporters sleep rough to raise funds
DORSET housing charity supporters have spent the night sleeping rough to raise money for homeless people in Dorchester.
Employees and supporters of Bournemouth Churches Housing Association (BCHA) spent the night unprotected on the beach from 7pm to 7am for 'The Big Sleep Out'.
The participants suffered a rude awakening with some rain in the middle of the night.
Lorna Trent, Fundraising Manager of BCHA said: "We're delighted that our group in Dorchester braved the elements to raise money for us.

"This group, in combination with our other Bournemouth group have helped make the second year of The Big Sleep out a resounding success. We look forward to doing it again in 2014."
Money raised will go towards providing homeless people with beds, food and utilities over the winter.
