Lighthouse abseil event to raise much needed funds for homelessness projects across Scotland
Supporters of homelessness charity Bethany Christian Trust will put themselves to the test next month by abseiling down Barns Ness Lighthouse in Dunbar to raise support for people who are homeless in Scotland.
The funds raised will support Bethany’s various services that provide help and care to people who are homeless and on the margins of society.
Working with Glasgow Climbing Centre, Bethany’s abseil event on September 8 offers participant’s a hair-raising, once in a lifetime opportunity to free-fall from one of Scotland’s tallest lighthouses. At 36 metres high and 117 year’s old, fundraisers are being invited to take the plunge while raising much needed funds for a good cause.
Mairead McLeod, events coordinator at Bethany Christian Trust, said: “Drop to Stop Homelessness is a great opportunity to get involved with Bethany Christian Trust and show your support for people who are homeless across Scotland. Last year over 34,000 people declared themselves homeless and this number is set to rise. At Bethany, we are doing everything we can to help people through homelessness, and by taking part in this exciting event, you will be too.
“All the funds raised will be going towards funding our essential services. By taking part you will help us ending homelessness in Scotland, one person at a time.”
