Calling all Sleep in the Park participants

Sleep in the ParkWith less than a week to go until Social Bite’s Sleep in the Park, Scottish Housing News is encouraging those taking part to get in touch on the night and share their stories.

Scottish Housing News’ editor Kieran Findlay will be live tweeting from the event so be sure to follow us on Twitter or use the #SleepinthePark hashtag to hear from fellow participants and follow the event.

Among the a cohort of housing associations taking part are Kingdom, Welso, Eildon, SFHA, Fairfield, Pentland and Glen Oaks with Cruden, Cyrenians, Scottish Rugby as well as Hibs and Hearts also involved.

Cairn is also taking part in the event with a team and as a corporate sponsor.

Kieran said: “As usual Scotland’s social housing sector is rising to the challenge of raising money for charity to help those less fortunate than ourselves and with the cold weather well and truly starting to take hold, this event is a stark reminder of the need to end homelessness and rough sleeping as soon as possible.

“Scottish Housing News wants to highlight all participants from housing associations and throughout the sector so feel free to seek me out via Twitter and tell your story.

“At the very least we can provide each other with some much-needed moral support for the event!”
