Edinburgh Napier staff and students are being given the chance to get behind Social Bite’s Sleep in the Park event.

On 9 December, an expected crowd of 9,000 will come together in Edinburgh’s Princes St Gardens for the world’s largest sleep out.

Attendees will be joined by some of the biggest artists and names in showbiz – including Liam Gallagher, Bob Geldof, Deacon Blue, Amy Macdonald and John Cleese – to sleep in the cold for one night. The event will be hosted by Rob Brydon.

All funds raised will go towards ending homelessness in Scotland – for good.

By joining the sleep out, you will be joining a collaborative movement of the third sector, the private sector and the Scottish Government to tackle one of society’s most pressing issues.

You can also choose to be a member of Team Napier at the event too!
