Here at Hello Scotland we're incredibly lucky in our industry to experience some of the best hospitality that Scotland has to offer. This December we're swapping 5* hotels with a night sleeping rough in Kelvingrove Park to raise money and awareness for Social Bite, the charity who are leading the fight to end homelessness across Scotland.
No one should ever have to sleep rough, especially in a cold, damp Scottish winter and as a community, we have the opportunity to end homelessness in our country and become a leading example to the rest of the world. Imagine what an achievement that would be... and what a direct positive impact it would have on so many lives.
We've pledged to raise over £3000 for Sleep in the Park. This money will go towards key interventions including a program to get 800 rough sleepers in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen into mainstream property with wrap around support. Donations will also support two innovative programs to prevent homelessness when people leave the care system and the prison system; as well as raising the political agenda with local and national governments.
We hope that you can support us in raising as much as we can for Sleep in the Park.
Big hugs and thank you from,
Bill, Elaine, Kirsty, Kirsten, Sharon, Lisa, Jenn and Rianna
