Raasay Primary School pupils raised £863.01 for Social Bite charity.

The pupils slept out in their school on Friday 9 November to raise funds for the charity, which aims to end homelessness in Scotland.

The pupils also ran a pop up cafe, while their own meal consisted of pasta and tinned fruit from a box of community donations.

The pupils said: “We are doing Social Bites as part of the ‘Year of Young People’ to end homelessness. We are all giving up our beds tonight. We want to help people who are homeless in Scotland. Because of tonight 830 people that are homeless will be in safe and secure accommodation. It is going to help almost 1000 people. We don’t think it is acceptable to be homeless.”

Donations can still be made here until 24 December.
