The bishop of Loughborough is to spend a night sleeping rough on the streets of Leicester.
Church of England bishop Guli Francis-Dehqani will take to the streets with other volunteers from the charity The Bridge, equipped with only cardboard, a sleeping bag, flasks and the clothes on their back for warmth.
The event, called The Big Sleep, will take place on Thursday March 26 on the De Montfort University and University of Leicester campuses.
The sleep out is just one of 30 projects Bishop Guli is undertaking over the next month-and-a-half as part of a Lent Pilgrimage, called The Salt of the Earth pilgrimage.
