Homelessness is an issue which affects too many people in Scotland. Jane and I have experienced the insecurity of homelessness and want to do anything we can to help people currently in that position, and to bring attention to a problem which is so often unnoticed in our community.
As you may already know, my family and I are taking part in Social Bite’s Sleep In The Park event in December. We will be spending the night of the 9th of December in Princes Street Gardens in order to raise both money and awareness for homelessness in Scotland. The overall aim of the charity is to completely eliminate homelessness in Scotland over the next ten years, and this is one of their biggest and most significant fundraising events.
I would be grateful if you could circulate this information to the members of your congregation, along with the link to the fundraising page at;
Any offline donations can be sent to the Diocesan Office. I thank you all for your support of this important cause.
