The Auld Toun Blog explores Edinburgh’s stories and gives updates about our latest news.
Auld Toun Walking Tours donates 10p from every ticket sold to The Rock Trust, an Edinburgh charity who work with young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
The Rock Trust will be celebrating 25 years of the Sleep Out, an event where ‘for one night only we are asking you to swap your bed for a sleeping bag.’ The event is a vital source of funding for the organisation and supports their work throughout the year. They help around 400 young people every year, with housing support, emergency support, mentoring, a rent deposit scheme and many other projects.
This year, the Sleep Out will be held at St Andrew’s Square in central Edinburgh, in October and November. Registration has closed but you can still make a donation.
