My story

[p]Unfortunately - due to a bad case of Tonsillitis I'm not able to take part in Sleep in the Park - I don't think sleeping out is a good idea when you're burning a fever. I'm lucky that I have to option to say no on health grounds - but all the homeless people in the UK don't have such a choice. So at this moment I feel very ill, but also very lucky to have a roof over my head.[/p][p]I'll be contacting everyone who's donated so far, to ask anyone would like me to personally reimburse them for donating - the money has gone to the charity directly - but it's not fair if I haven't done the event & so would like to offer everyone the chance to be reimbursed. As as alternative - I'm proposing a Sleep on the Decking as soon as I'm fully recovered, this won't be as great as the Sleep in the Park event - but I will sleep without a tent in Aberdeenshire for 1 night in December - so hopefully it will make up in some way for not making the event tonight.[/p][p]Wish everyone doing the event, the best of luck & really wish I was with you all,[/p][p]Karen[/p][p][br][/p]
