Halton Nightstop

RUNCORN, U K (Runcorn and Widnes Weekly News) - A homelessness charity has raised more than £2,000 after it held a sleep-over in Widnes.

Halton Nightstop held the event at St Paul’s Church where a hardcore of 34 participants managed to stay the course throughout until morning.

More than 200 residents had signed up for the charity bash.

Entertainment was laid on by Halton’s rising stars of rock Candidate 32 and other acts including Charlotte McElvie, Rossi Walsh O’Neil.

Halton mayor Keith Morley donated two sleeping bags to young people. Other councillors to attend were Tom and Angela McInerney, Eddie Jones, Sue Edge and Pam Wallace.

Terri Kearney, Nightstop co-ordinator, said: “The sleepover was a huge success in raising awareness of homelessness and the plights faced by young people.

“Thank you to those who stayed the entire night where we did quizzes, watched films and talked the night away.

“And thank you to Halton and Apollo housing trusts, Cronton Bakery, Cake Away, Halton Borough Council, Cheshire police and the fire service who all supported the event.”
