A massive well done to the brave volunteers from S1 and S2 who slept out on George Street on Friday night in aid of the Rock Trust with Miss Dancer and Miss McNeil from our Languages Department – Cameron Nolan, Shannon Johnstone, Abbie Wilson, Jack Hepburn, Lewis Simmonds, Adam Pearson, Hayley Jordan and Dylan Elliot. A special mention to Shannon Elder who was not able to join us on the night due to illness but participated by fundraising for the event beforehand.
Miss Dancer said “Having now experienced a night outside on the pavement I think we were all left contemplating just how terrifyingly lonely it must feel to find yourself on the streets night after night without the protection and comforts we were offered by the lovely staff at Rock Trust”.
The Rock Trust supports young homeless people in Edinburgh & the Lothians. So far raised we have raised over £300 in combined donations from staff, family and friends and we hope to hit £400 once all the pledges are collected.
