Aberdeen Cyrenians Annual Charity Sleepout

Each year the Aberdeenshire homeless persons charity asks members of the public to take part in an organised event to sleep out. The aim is to raise awareness of the charity, to give people a feel for how it is to sleep outside whilst raising funds for the Aberdeen Cyrenians charities work. Those who take part are asked to bring a sleeping bag, hat, gloves and a cardboard box.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.

The 50th Aberdeen Cyrenians Annual Charity Sleepout for 2018 will take place from 7pm on Friday 9th March until 7am on Saturday 10th. Participants will spend the night sleeping outdoors in the car park of Asda Garthdee to experience some of the issues homeless people face on a day to day basis. People can take along their own sleeping bags and Aberdeen Cyrenians will provide cardboard for participants to sleep on and to help themselves shelter from the elements. It's not a complete homelessness experience because they will be there providing hot drinks and participants will be able to access the toilets and facilities in Asda, but the aim of the night is to experience some of the things homeless people experience and gain a better awareness of what it is like to be in that situation.

For more information or to register visit their website at www.aberdeen-cyrenians.org where you can download a registration form and sponsorship forms. Participants are asked for a 5 fee and the charity hopes that you would raise at least 50.
