This Friday the 7th of August will be a cold and uncomfortable night for fund raising participants sleeping outside to raise awareness about the Illawarra’s homeless community.

The event has been organised by the South Coast City Church (SCCC) to also raise money for local services helping the more than 1500 disadvantaged members of our community.

Participants will spend from 6.30 pm Friday to 7.30 am Saturday under the David Jones bridge link in the Crown Street Mall.

Senior Pastor of SCCC, Peter Starr, says people are simply looking for a way to help.

To register and for more information visit the SCCC website.

Tuesday 11th August 2009, Crossfire caught up with Peter Starr to find out how the Friday night event and how much money was raised. Listen in below.
