Scouts brave the cold to raise awareness of homelessness

Sub-zero temperatures did not stop a scout group from sleeping rough on Friday night to raise awareness of homelessness.

A group of 12 scouts, three young leaders and four adult leaders from the 13th Maidenhead troop slept in cardboard boxes outside the High Street Methodist Church.

Despite it being as cold as minus five degrees at times, spirits remained high among the group.

They were also given a talk by Ruth Sorby from the charity Action for Children (A4C).

13th Maidenhead Scouts meet at the church on Friday evenings.
