Fringe Society staff brave the elements to support Social Bite's Sleep in the Park
09 November 2017
A group of nine Fringe Society staff will be taking part in Sleep in the Park this December to help raise funds for Social Bite's movement to end homelessness in Scotland.
On December 9th, come rain, hail, snow or sleet, the group will be joining thousands of people at the mass sleepout event in Edinburgh's city centre.
Organised by Social Bite, Fringe Society staff will be raising money to support their 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.
To help the team reach their fundraising target the Fringe Society hosted a fantastic Fringe quiz night and raffle on Wednesday 08 November at Akva, Fountainbridge, raising over £1,000.
Raffle prizes were kindly donated by:
