Langstane's staff sleep in the park!
Langstane staff to take part in Social Bite’s ‘Sleep in the Park’.
Staff from Langstane Housing Association’s Social Justice Team, together with a like-minded colleague from WorkingRite, will join 12,000 other participants under the stars as part of Social Bite’s ‘Sleep in the Park’.
On 8 December 2018 at Aberdeen’s Duthie Park, the team will be braving the weather as they raise funds for a cause very close to their hearts: the alleviation of homelessness and rough sleeping.
Over coming weeks, the team will be organising fundraising events ahead of their ‘sleep out’, setting themselves a minimum goal of raising £500. In support of their colleagues, Langstane Housing Association will be making a donation to the very worthwhile cause.
The team organiser, Susan Penley, said:
“This is something I’d thought about last year but unfortunately I couldn’t quite make it. This year we’re determined and have been delighted with the support we’ve received from our colleagues”.
Langstane’s Chief Executive, Helen Gauld, said:
“We’re extremely proud of our staff. Many fundraise for causes they’re passionate about. However, sleeping outside during winter months, in Aberdeen, is fundraising at a different level.
“We wish them all the very best and although we cannot control the weather, we hope it is dry and not too cold”.
