LOCAL couple Rob Reaks and David Bell will join the Mayor of Brighton and Hove and spend all night on the upper boarding deck of the British Airways i360 on Saturday, April 6 to raise funds for this year’s Mayoral Charities.

The challenge is to:

1. Sleep outdoors without shelter

2. Sleep exposed to the elements including rain; and

3. Sleep without bedding other than a sleeping bag, pillow and a cardboard sheet

The four charities benefiting from the Spring Sleep Out are Grace Eyre – Supporting people with learning disabilities; Martlets – Caring for people living through a terminal illness; Off the Fence – Supporting young people, women in crisis, and those facing homelessness; and, Rockinghorse – Improving the lives of sick children throughout Sussex.
