On the 9th December 2017, Andy, Rebecca and an Eidyn Care client participated in the Sleep In The Park where temperatures dipped to minus 5 in Princes Street Gardens whilst we slept under the stars.
The aim of Sleep in the Park is to try and eradicate homelessness across Scotland but sleeping out under the stars and raising much needed funds that can be challenged into various initiatives.
One of our client’s has wanted to do it but felt she needed a little bit of assistance to be able to participate. As we are a person centered care service we decided that we would support her in her endeavour and would freeze together in an effort to raise awareness and funds.
Although a slightly uncomfortable night for us, we were able raise an amazing £1400 for the homeless! Thank you to all who supported us!
It really brought it home on nights like that when there is snow on the ground and people are still sleeping rough in this day and age 😢 please look out for anyone you see who is homeless. Have a chat. Ask them what they need and if you can help please do. To notice them and treat them with dignity and respect will help them get through the long days. Keep safe ❄️❤️❄️
