We have lots of great ideas to help you put the fun into fundraising!

Materials and resources

As well as people volunteering their time, we also receive many non-financial donations of materials and resources. We gratefully accept these when we have capacity to use and store them within our community. If you have something you would like to donate that could potentially help us, please contact us to discuss: 0131 225 3626.

Thank you

Although we strive to support ourselves through social enterprise as much as we can, we still rely on donations to sustain our community. Without these we could not keep our community going, which provides support and nurture to so many people in desperate need. We are very grateful for all the support we receive.
