Convener of Health, Wellbeing & Housing – Ricky Henderson

Councillor Ricky Henderson, the Health Social Care and Housing Convener on the City of Edinburgh Council, is taking up a challenge to sleep out tonight outside the City Chambers with the Bethany Trust as part of their Big Sleep out. This event means people have to leave the warmth and comfort of their home for one night and sleep under the stars. The Edinburgh Reporter spoke to Councillor Henderson who was still at work on Friday afternoon to find out more about his night ahead:

Last year 350 participants raised an incredible £56,000 to support some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.
