Edinburgh Zoo Sleep Out

The Provincial Grand Lodge of Edinburgh is supporting the Lord and Lady Provost's Sleep Out at Edinburgh Zoo in support of local homelessness charities, The Rock Trust and Four Square.

A staggering 3,930 households were assessed as homeless in 2013/14.  Worse still, 25% of homeless households in the city are young people aged 24 or younger!

Through Virgin Money Giving all funds donated in support of ‘Sleep Out at Edinburgh Zoo for Homelessness’ will be donated equally to the ‘Rock Trust’ and to ‘Four Square’.

These two charities have a clear mission to prevent homelessness, particularly amongst young people, and to deliver front line services across the city.
