YOUNGSTERS from a North-East church slept rough this weekend to raise money for children living on the streets.

The Youth Fellowship from Hutton Rudby Methodist Church, in Cleveland, slept outside the church in cardboard boxes on Saturday to highlight the problem of homelessness.

They also put on a concert and ran a soup kitchen for World Action's Streets Apart campaign, urged people to bring a sock full of change to church and there was a collection of children's shoes, and a shoe shine, for the charity.
