A GROUP of Pendle Scouts spent a night sleeping rough to raise money for a homeless charity in Nelson.

The 16th Pendle Sacred Heart Scouts created their own cardboard city outside the church, in Colne, to spend the night.

The event was to raise money for the charity Safe Space. The young people were told to bring only a few essential items for their outdoor sleep-over.

Before settling down for the night they were paid a visit by Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson and staff from Safe Space.
