Former Brighton & Hove Albion defender and club legend Guy Butters will be toughing out the elements this weekend when he sleeps rough on the streets of Hove in order to raise money and awareness for homelessness.
This Saturday, Butters will be joined by Albion’s head of communications Paul Camillin and head of marketing Tom Gorringe, as the trio undertake a night on the streets with nothing more than warm clothing, a sleeping bag and a cardboard box.
The money raised goes towards Antifreeze, an area of charity partner Off The Fence, who work with hundreds of homeless individuals around Brighton & Hove.

Butters, speaking on his JustGiving page, said, “While many of us go home to a heated house, hot meal and warm bed at the end of a winter day, hundreds around the city cannot.
“I want to support the work of Antifreeze who work hard to provide basic survival needs - food, sleeping bags, clothing- as well as offering services at their day centre to help with emotional implications of homelessness and practical solutions to get them off the streets.”
Last year Antifreeze supported nearly 800 homeless individuals, had their day centre accessed 7867 times and housed 62 individuals.
