Braving The Cold 

Highworth sleep out raises hundreds for Help for Heroes
 
While most of us were tucked up in bed with our cocoa - or still in the pub - a group of volunteers slept out in Highworth in aid of Help for Heroes this weekend.

The event was led by local 'ironman' and endurance world-record holder Mike Buss, a former soldier, who persuaded others to join him in the market square with just a sleeping bag and a steely resolve against the cold.
 
Hot soup and an early morning fry up was provided by nearby Brooks's Coffee Shop.
 
"We did invite the local Air Corp to join us but they weren't allowed to due to health and safety," joked Mike, who aims to raise 1 million pound for charity before 2014.
