A Cas­tle Dou­glas church elder is get­ting ready to brave the cold once again.

Iso­bel Prowse, above, will take part in home­less en­ter­prise So­cial Bite’s Sleep in the Park in Ed­in­burgh next month.

Iso­bel and daugh­ter Emily were among thou­sands who took part last year, rais­ing more than £3,000 as tem­per­a­tures dipped to -6 in Princes Street Gar­dens.

On December 8 Iso­bel, 74, will tackle the chal­lenge again. She said: “The young ladies’ group at Cas­tle Dou­glas Church in­vited me to tell them about my ex­pe­ri­ence. I thought ‘You have to do it again.’ My daugh­ter is not com­ing this year but I’ll find some­one to talk to.”

Iso­bel’s son has loaned her out­door equip­ment to en­sure she isn’t too cold.

So­cial Bite is com­mit­ted to end­ing home­less­ness and is work­ing on the So­cial Bite Vil­lage which will pro­vide ac­com­mo­da­tion for home­less peo­ple be­fore help­ing them into per­ma­nent ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Any­one want­ing to spon­sor Iso­bel can do so at Cas­tle Dou­glas Parish Church each Sun­day or by vis­it­ing https://uk.vir­gin­money­giv­ing.com/iso­bel­prowse
