The Hills mayor Michelle Byrne has thanked everyone who attended her inaugural Winter Sleepout at Bella Vista Farm on Saturday night.

‘‘It wasn’t the most comfortable sleep, the ground was hard and the neck got sore but there was something special about sharing the experience with approximately 80 other like-minded individuals,’’ Cr Byrne wrote on her Facebook page.

As of Sunday morning, about $42,000 had been raised for The Community Foundation of North Western Sydney’s homelessness programs and other local charities.
