Home­less help

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The 107 Auck­lan­ders who took part in the Life­wise Big Sleep­out on July 3 have raised $154,000 to help the home­less. With lit­tle more than a sleep­ing bag and a sheet of card­board, par­tic­i­pants spent the night at the Auck­land Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy. Tem­per­a­tures plum­meted to just six de­grees at mid­night. ‘‘I think it was the cold­est night that we’d had at a big sleep­out in the five years that we’ve been do­ing this,’’ Life­wise’s Les­ley Mynett-John­son says. Do­na­tions are be­ing taken on­line through­out July at bigsleep­out.org.nz.
