A seven-year-old girl from Hampshire is doing her bit to help homeless people by sleeping rough as part of a charity fundraiser.

Erin Mitchell from Aldershot is among 100 people taking part in the Big Summer Sleep-out at Aldershot Town Football Club's EBB Stadium later.

The youngster and others taking part by sleeping at the stadium overnight are raising money for local charity Step by Step which helps to house homeless people aged under 25.

Erin has already raised £500 for the event, which last year raised a total of £11,000.
