This is to invite you to a Business Breakfast that the Together Churches (St Andrew's & St George's West, St Cuthbert's and St John's) are organising for Wednesday 25 April. The keynote speaker will be the Very Rev Dr Russell Barr, founder of Fresh Start and a member of the Scottish Government's Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Action Group.
Following the success of the Sleep in the Park in December and, more recently, the support from local businesses for St John's, when the church was open during the severe weather, we hope that a representative of your business will be present to hear about issues around homelessness, and possible ways the business sector can be involved. Many of the homelessness agencies in Edinburgh will be represented and will be able to share more about their work.
The venue is the new Cornerstone Centre at St John's, Princes St, and the timing of the breakfast will be 0745 for 0800, with people able to be away by 0900. There will, however be an opportunity for any who can, to stay on for another hour or so and hear more about what is already happening in Edinburgh.
The deadline for booking is Monday 16 April; however spaces are limited, so we ask you to book a place as soon as possible by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
