Edinburgh property management team sleeps out in -6 temperatures
Social Bite’s Sleep in the Park event took over Edinburgh’s Princes Street Gardens at the weekend as over 8,000 people, made up of small corporate teams and individuals, volunteered to sleep rough for a night to raise funds and awareness to help eradicate homelessness in Scotland.
Among them were a team of seven Cullen Property representatives who raised £5,400 through generous donations in the run up to the event. Cullen Property, based in Edinburgh’s West End, then matched this figure and several subsequent donations have taken this total to over £12,000.
Cullen Property are the only Scottish property management and lettings company to make the top ten list of corporate fundraisers during the pre-event fund-raising campaign. The latest total raised for the Social Bite campaign sits at £3.6 million, but donations are still open and joint organiser, Josh Littlejohn, will announce the full amount on Christmas Eve.
Malcolm Warrack, Managing Director at Cullen Property, says: “I would like to thank everyone for their fantastic support and very generous contributions towards our fundraising for this year’s Social Bite, Sleep in the Park. We have managed to raise a significant amount for this hugely important campaign which will contribute to changing the lives of many homeless people in Scotland.
“Thank you to all the Cullen Property team members who took part - a fantastic team effort from everyone.”
