You are warmly invited to join us at this year’s AGM on Thursday 26th November at 5pm to hear about our charity and community’s achievements this year – in spite of COVID-19 pandemic, and our plans for the future. A future wherein we hope to ensure GCP continues to provide a warm welcome and a rich stimulating supportive community for vulnerable people in the heart of Edinburgh.
While this has been an incredibly challenging year for everyone, we are incredibly proud of what our community’s members, volunteers, staff and friends has achieved throughout the year. GCP’s lockdown programme focused on keeping people connected, tackling food poverty and helping overcome increased barriers to accessing services and support.
With the closure of our social enterprise for much of 2020, will would not have been able to continue, and will not be able to continue, without additional support from our friends. If you are in a position in any way to support the GCP and the city’s most vulnerable this will be very much appreciated.

We go forward with active plans to regenerate our enterprise, with some exciting new ideas. Our members programme has a wide variety of activities for learning and engagement available through a creative mix of onsite and online facilities. We still enjoy great partnerships with many customers, suppliers, charities and support agencies.
So, bring a cuppa, settle down in a comfy chair and join us on Zoom to hear more, see more, and enjoy
- Some entertainment from Grassmarket Choir
- A short video on our community
- A message from our Chair and inspired founder Rev. Dr Richard Frazer minister of Greyfriars Kirk
- A Financial Overview from our Treasurer
- A Review of 2020 – the challenges we have faced and the support we have provided, with Jonny Kinross, our CEO and 2 of our members
- Launch of our Website
- Launch of our Business Plan 2021-2023
There will be time for questions and discussion too on anything you see or hear about. It’ll be warm and enjoyable 1 hour on a wintery evening and it’ll be warmer still if you would join us.
Once registered/RSVP’d you’ll get a safe link to use on Thursday 26th November at 5pm and it’ll be great to see you or just hear if you prefer or simply to have you there.
