Students who spent a night sleeping rough on the concourse outside The University of Sheffield have raised more than £2,000 for charity.

The Rough It overnight event aimed to raise awareness of homelessness.

Through sponsorship and collections on the night, the 40-plus students raised more than £2,400 for Castle Salvation Army in Sheffield.

Student Joe Burton said: “It was a truly eye-opening night.”
