Volunteers working with the YMCA plan to sleep rough in Kingston Memorial Gardens tonight to raise money for charity.

Sleep Easy is a YMCA fundraising initiative raising money to help change the lives of vulnerable young people.

It's just one of a number events happening up and down the country.

People taking part are due to head to the gardens at around 7pm tonight.

The idea is to highlight the issue of youth homelessness.  

Another event is also taking place in Wimbledon Piazza.  

It's estimated that between the two sites, the event is set to attract 250 people.

It won't all be rough, hot soup will be handed out to those taking part and other homeless people.

There'll also be breakfast in the morning.
