Each year, Fettes undertakes numerous charitable fundraising events often driven by the students themselves due to a family connection of specific area of interest. Close to home, we annually support The Rock Trust in their efforts to raise awareness of and much needed funds for youth homelessness in Edinburgh.
This year, 50 Fettesians took part and despite the odd shower and the cold, spirits remained high throughout the night. The event was brilliantly run as always by The Rock Trust and participants enjoyed a silent disco and entertainment from a magician before climbing into their sleeping bags for the night.
The total raised by the sleep out participants is over £5000, an incredible achievement.
A big thank you to all the students and staff who took part in raising money for such a fantastic cause. We will continue to support the efforts of The Rock Trust not just financially but by raising awareness of their work too.
