Last night, with exactly one month to go until Social Bite’s Sleep In The Park 2018, I spoke at Dunfermline Toastmasters to explain I decided to take part in the event.
About two months ago, I had the privilege in chatting with KT Tunstall for Wave FM News – she told me about the importance of December’s event, which is taking place in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow. A few days after speaking with her, I was inspired to sign up to play my part in helping the homeless. God willing, I’ll join many people in sleeping outside on a December night in Dundee to experience life living without a roof over my head. 12,000 people are to participate across Scotland’s four major cities. The aim is to raise £4 million to help the homeless in Scotland with those taking part calling for an end to homelessness across the country.
This week, I hit my £100 fundraising target, but I’d like to see the total I raise towards the social enterprise go much further.
At last night’s Dunfermline Toastmasters meeting, during my speech, I told the audience, “Each participant who takes part in Sleep In The Park next month is expected to raise a minimum of £100, including an initial contribution themselves of £50.
“Now, so far, unless I’ve received a donation during this meeting tonight, I can confirm that I’ve raised for Social Bite, £105.
“But, I would like to raise more!”
