On Friday 20th March, 35 hardy souls spent a chilly night camping out at the Shettleston Community Growing Project site. The Big Shettleston Sleepover aims to raise awareness of fuel poverty and to raise money for people in the Shettleston area affected by it. The event was organised by the Shettleston Housing Association’s SEA project (Shettleston Energy Advice) and local charity, the Shettleston Community Growing Project.
