I’m going to give up my bed (and Charlie’s company) for a night on 18th March 2016 to help fundraise to make sure that loads more people get a safe, warm bed this winter. Over the last 15 years the Big Sleep Out has seen over 2000 participants in various locations raise over £300K to help the people that are most in need in Scotland. £300K is an amazing amount of money and in real terms, could provide over 10,000 bed spaces in their emergency winter care shelters – but they need more and need to continually fundraise. The number of people using the shelters is on the rise.
So I’m going to sleep in a cardboard box for the night mainly to raise awareness and hopefully some money to help too. I don’t normally do sponsored things but all you who know me well know how much this subject matters to me. If you are able to and feel like it’s something you’d like to support please sponsor me at the link below.https://bigsleepout2016.everydayhero.com/uk/h-a
If not then do please check out some of the websites of organisations that are working with homeless people in Glasgow – there are lots of different ways to help. As well as Bethany Trust there is Glasgow City Mission who do amazing work – http://www.glasgowcitymission.com/about-us/what-we-do/
