Story

Christmas is a time of year where we eat, drink and are merry with our
families and friends. 

But it is also an incredibly lonely and harsh time for our homeless populations

This event will be the first time business leaders of Scottish society experience for one night what the homeless community go through and all funds raised will go to breaking the cycle of homelessness for good.

Projects supported by this event include building a Social Bite Village in 2017 which will offer a full homelessness solution, spanning from housing to employment and everything in between. 

The sleep-out will take place in Charlotte Square in Edinburgh from 7pm – 7am with only a sleeping bag to see us through the cold winters night. 

Any donation, no matter how big or small, is greatly appreciated and will have a far-reaching positive impact on our local homeless community. 

If we all support this cause we can make sure that no one has to sleep rough ever again.

Thanks for reading,

Abigail
