Clear Business proudly supported one of our corporate customers, Balhousie Care Group, in their fundraising for Sleep in The Park Dundee 2018.
Balhousie Care Group is a not-for-profit organisation that is ‘passionate about care’ with over 18 years’ experience creating a ‘home-from-home’ for their residents. They operate 24 homes across Scotland offering a wide range of care from Alzheimer’s & Dementia to Respite with people at the centre of everything they do. For them, it was an easy decision to take part in Sleep in The Park.
Social Bite’s Sleep in the Park is a collaborative movement to end homelessness in Scotland involving the third sector, the private sector and The Scottish Government. By inviting 12,000 of people to Sleep Out on a cold December night their aim was to raise valuable funds and accelerate the pace of change for Scotland’s most vulnerable people. This year the event took place on the 8th December, so far raising £3,200,200 and Balhousie Care Group are one of the major supporters.
Through fundraising activities including Gig Beside The Park, Cake Sales and Fancy Dress Days in addition to sponsors such as Clear Business, Balhousie Care Group raised £16,211.24.
Chairman and Founder of Balhousie Care Group Tony Banks said:
‘When I was approached by Social Bite asking if Balhousie Care Group would like to take part in Sleep in The Park Dundee I had no hesitation in saying yes. The statistics on homelessness and loneliness in Scotland and the rise they have taken over the last few years is frightening. As a business owner in Scotland, I wanted to work with Social Bite to build a collaborative movement to try to end homelessness in the country.’
