Fundraisers spend a night in cardboard boxes in a car park

MORE than 60 Islanders braved strong winds and a cold November night to sleep in Pier Road car park to raise money for charity on Saturday.
And it looks as though the charity could be in for a major fundraising total – with just 20 sponsorship forms in, the event has already raised £9,000.
Those who took part were allowed one blanket or sleeping bag and one cardboard box, but organiser Jon Hackwood said that every one of the 66 people who took part had managed to get some sleep – although he said that some looked bleary-eyed the next morning.
