Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and throughout the year Volunteers and volunteering are what make the Grassmarket possible. Many of our members volunteer to re-build their lives or give their  life purpose and feel part of community. Many of our staff volunteer as well as work for us. So lets not let COVID -19 stop us from celebrating the contribution that volunteers make.

This year during #VolunteersWeek 1-7th June #VolunteerWeekScot we are taking part in the week in a unique way with an exciting project. We are asking all our members, volunteers and staff to make Origami Doves because we believe as a community that we should all be #VolunteeringForHope

The best video of the technique (though not in English but doesn’t matter as there is no talking)
is https://youtu.be/bc0HXtS9as0 

Our staff will regularly be making them on social media and demonstrating. Instructions can also be found a on www.grassmarket.org/volunteerforhope and below. We will send paper to everyone and more if people ask and then simply post them back free to us before Friday 5th June to: FREEPOST Grassmarket
