North West Edinburgh Foodbank: The parish collects and donates food for the local Foodbank based at the Rannoch Centre. This year the net profit from the donations for tea and coffee after Sunday Mass is buying food for the food bank. To date £500+ worth of food has been donated.
Fresh Start is an Edinburgh charity that helps people who have been homeless get established in their new home. The parish supports their work by collecting reusable household goods and basic items for their Starter Pack service. We also donate food on occasion for their food starter packs. Items can be handed in at any time to the Parish Room.
Starter Pack Appeal this month: dinner plates.
