Langstane’s staff sleep in the park! 16/10/18
All in a good cause that is! 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 worth-while 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”.
