Last month local charity Social Bite launched a very exciting event that will take place in Edinburgh called Sleep In The Park. This event will be host to the world's largest sleep-out ever. Social Bite are inviting thousands of participants, 9,000 to be exact to sleep rough in the shadow of the world famous Edinburgh Castle in Princess Street Gardens.
When I heard about this event I knew I wanted to be apart of it and help in anyway I could to help eradicate homelessness in Scotland. It's Social Bite's mission to eradicate homelessness in Scotland within a 5 year period with the aim of raising £4 million to make this awesome goal happen.
This incredible event will take place in Edinburgh's West Princess Street Gardens on Saturday 9th December 2017 and we won't be alone. There will be a star studded cast who will be "busking" to keep everyone entertained with sweet sounds coming from Liam Gallagher, Deacon Blue, Amy MacDonald, Frightened Rabbit and a few other very special guests.
The event will be hosted by Rob Brydon and the legendary John Cleese will be performing a bedtime story for us to fall asleep under the stars of hopefully a clear, crisp Decembers night.
The bad news is that there will no ticket sales for Sleep In The Park, the only way you can participate is by reaching fundraising target and accepting the sleep out challenge. However, the good news is that if you would like to be apart of this unique and awesome event I have set up a team and I am opening my team up to you all.
With 4 spot already gone to clients I think this is a fantastic opportunity to really push the boat out and raise as much money as possible for this cause. I have decided to open up another team so if you would like to be apart of this please get in touch.
The aim is to raise £3,000 per team which works out to be only £600 per person which I think is a very modest and achievable sum to raise each.
There are some perks that comes along with being apart of the CD Fitness team. We will be apart Social Bites corporate lunch created by Martin Wishart, where there will be appearances from Sir Bob Geldof and John Cleese. This lunch event will be be held at the EICC
So what happens to the funds that we raise - Social Bite will be able to stop the negativity surrounding homelessness and get to the root issues with a plan to eradicate homelessness over a 5 year period by providing people with housing, rehabilitation, job opportunities and the support they need to get back on their feet.
