Wanda's wonderful effort to raise cash for Winchester homeless
4:47pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
AMONG those doing their bit at Winchester’s Big Sleep out, there will be one resident who has clocked up a lot more than just 40 winks in her time.
Wanda Nash will be at the cathedral on Friday, September 20, with many others to sleep over night whilst raising money for Winchester’s homelessness charities.
But unlike the others, whilst raising money for Trinity Winchester and Winchester Churches Nightshelter, Wanda will also be celebrating her 79th birthday.
Now she has invited her friends to bring their sleeping bags and help her celebrate.
“I have always wished to spend the night in the cathedral and what better way to celebrate my birthday than being here with friends, whilst also raising money for such a great cause,” she said.
Winchester and Chandler’s Ford MP, Steve Brine, who took part in the last sleep out in 2009, said: “This event is not only a unique opportunity to sleep at the city’s most famous landmark but also a great way to support two invaluable local charities, I hope people will be inspired to sign up and join the fun."
