Staff from Begbies Traynor in Preston joined up with representatives from The Foxton Centre today to promote their participation in the Big PNE Sleep Out 2023. 

Based in the heart of the city, The Foxton Centre works with Preston’s most vulnerable residents – providing a wide range of services. This year, the Big PNE Sleep Out’s goal is to raise £50k for The Foxton Day Centre, based on Fox Street, to provide food, warmth and activities for its users. 

Taking place overnight on Friday 17th November 2023, participants will spend the night on the pitch of the Preston North End football ground.

As part of its 30-year celebrations this year, Begbies Traynor wanted to support the Foxton Centre, a local registered charity in Preston which looks to provide support and assistance to vulnerable adults in the local area, with a focus on rough sleepers and the homeless.

The support provided has already seen Begbies Traynor donating funding towards the Foxton Centre’s breakfast scheme for the city’s vulnerable adults.

Donations are welcome through the following link:

Chris Lawton, partner at Begbies Traynor in Preston, said: 

"We selected The Foxton Centre as our local charity partner earlier this year to help raise funds and awareness for the wonderful work it does in our local community.

“The centre is close to our office in Preston and we've developed a brilliant relationship with them. Begbies Traynor is delighted to support this flagship charity event in the heart of Preston.”

Carole Vizzard, Business Development Manager at Begbies Traynor, added:

“We are only too happy to spend a night sleeping out if it helps raise awareness and encourage donations for this vital local charity. We're also encouraging others in Preston’s professional services community to take part and we hope to see as many people as possible on the night.”
