North End striker Louis Moult admits he is struggling to sleep at home so unfortunately can’t take part in The Big PNE Sleep Out, but it’s a cause which remains close to his heart.
Hundreds of people are set to spend the night at Deepdale on Friday 15th November with the aim to raise £50,000 for the Foxton Centre.
The money will be used to buy and renovate a house supporting homeless people in Preston.
Louis has spoken out about his support for the Foxton Centre, which works with vulnerable young people and adults in Preston.
His mum died of alcoholism when he was a teenager and the striker recently told matchday programme editor Dany Robson how he has used that experience to get involved in the charity side of being a footballer.
“It’s a cause which is close to me, it’s brilliant and I have been doing what I can on social media to support The Big PNE Sleep Out, there seems to be a lot of love for it,” Louis said.
“Unfortunately, I can’t do it as I can barely sleep in my own bed with my knee at the moment!
“I have visited the Foxton Centre a number of times and seen the work they do which is fantastic. They are volunteers who give up their time to help others and get people back on the straight and narrow.
“It’s an amazing place for the community and it will be fantastic if they raise the money – hopefully they will.”
