Scott Hutchison-McDade, from Dysart-based Positive Change Yoga, joined dozens of other peaceful demonstrators at Charing Cross on Saturday night for an 11-hour outdoor stint as part of Buddhist Action Month (BAM). Yoga teacher Scott, who is a former student of Zenways, said he hoped the charity all-nighter would help raise awareness of the plight of homeless people.

“The majority of people feel that finding peace is something out with their reach and reserved for yogis and hippies that are stereotypically disconnected from the real world and living on the fringes of society. I have spent many years chasing peace, searching for external factors to help me find my internal calmness.”
