The Sleep in the Park event – which also took place in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow – saw performances from Kyle Falconer, KT Tunstall, Amy Macdonald and others.

“It’s fantastic that we’re showing solidarity tonight and we do see them, and we do want to help. Thank you for being involved. I’m so proud to be part of Social Bite tonight.”

The cash will go towards tackling homelessness through housing projects and employment programmes, and supporting those on the streets with shelters and hot food and drink.
