From 8:00pm on 2nd November through to 6:00am on 3rd November, Bishop Paul Ferguson will be joining CEOs (Chief Executive Officers - big bosses) from around the region to spend the evening sleeping out on the Victorian Street at Preston Park Museum.

The Sleepout event aims to raise awareness and funds to support the work of a new restaurant in Middlesbrough, Fork In The Road, which is a not-for-profit project which will be providing work experience opportunities to Teessiders who want to make a fresh start.

This is a fantastic project that demonstrates servant-hearted leadership and raising up the poor in spirit.
