On Friday and Saturday we were delighted to attend the Big Ibrox Sleep Outs, arranged by the Rangers Charity Foundation.
Our Winter Project Manager, Elyse, talked to the Rangers fans who had committed to sleeping out overnight. She explained the set-up of our Overnight Welcome Centre this year as we work again with over 20 partner agencies in the city to ensure that no one needs to sleep rough this winter. This is our 13th season, after we initially ran our Winter Night Shelter, and we have expanded and developed our service each year to fit the needs of the city. We will host the Overnight Welcome Centre in our Crimea Street building and will be able to accommodate guests each night in a variety of locations in the city. This increased choice will benefit our guests.
The Rangers fans have shown incredible commitment to the Sleep Outs over the years and once again they turned out in large numbers. We thanked them on behalf of the guests that will use our Overnight Welcome Centre. We are also extremely grateful for the continued support of the Rangers Charity Foundation.
