Bethany's big sleepout

April 02 2010
Dozens sleep out for the Edinburgh charity

On 26 March, dozens of Edinburgh inhabitants are sponsored to sleep rough in aid of homeless people. The Bethany Christian Trust's Big Sleepout, first held in 2002, has been a great success in the past, with last year's event raising over £21,000 for the charity.

Friends and family sponsor participants to sleep out on the Royal Mile between 10pm and 7.30am - and for light sleepers there will be a shelter-building competition during the night.

All sponsorship raised goes to the work of the Bethany Christian Trust, which runs a variety of initiatives and projects in Scotland, helping and supporting homeless and vulnerable people to tackle their problems.
