Sleep in the Park - Well done Isobel - and Emily ! Here is a brief report from Isobel

Very glad I did it, despite the Baltic conditions!

We picked our spot, dressed up like mobile duvets, set up camp beneath the Castle rock, next to the railway line, and then got food before the crowds grew. The music was not really my taste, but we bopped along to keep warm!!!!!!  Leaving the concert zone before John Cleese finished his rambling bedtime story, we were able to avail ourselves of the facilities before the queues grew twenty deep! 

The Moderator had invited church folk to meet with him at 1am (!!!!!) for a chat and a group photo, but long before then it was  so …… cold (we were led to believe it was only -6C!!), that we retired to mats and sleeping bags inside the huge orange plastic sacks donated by the charity!  Em had me so well parcelled that I could barely move, so I did sleep from 12 till 4.30 when cramp set in. She managed an hour longer!  

Thank you all very much for encouraging and sponsoring me. In addition to the retiring donation of £300 from the church. I think my fundraising has topped £1,500, but more arrives daily. Job not done, but begun! Thank you for all your support.
