6 brave souls from SVL Business Solutions have decided to help the homeless here in Scotland by taking part in “Sleep in the Park” on Saturday 8th December, 2018.
Debbie Bicker, Pauline Dawson, Michaela Hastie, Peter Gough, David Kindness and Michelle Martin will sleep under the stars in Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow for one night, with no shelter other than their sleeping bags.
They are doing this to raise funds and have a shared experience which will underline how difficult it is every night for those sleeping rough. Around 12,000 people across 4 cities will participate in this nationwide sleep out. The event has been organised by Social Bite, an organisation which runs social enterprise cafe’s around Scotland and distributes over 100,000 items of food and drink to homeless people across Scotland every year.
Last year’s sleep out in Edinburgh Princes Street Gardens helped build a village to help homeless people get back on their feet. This year’s event will raise even more funds and increase the profile of this homeless charity/
The financial target is a minimum of £2000, but the team hope to raise much more, so please spare a couple of pounds if you can. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
