Edinburgh Academy Junior School brings festive cheer to clients


We were delighted to receive another collection of donations from the Edinburgh Academy Junior School. As the school’s chosen charity for 2013-2014, the children in the charity committee decided they would like to do something with a festive touch for people we have worked with on the Hit Squads.

The children and their families were extremely generous in donating Christmas food, toiletries and decorations for local people who may be facing a very bare Christmas. We counted 46 boxes of mince pies alone were donated!

Here are some of the goodies we took to families in the week before Christmas:

The clients were absolutely delighted, with one lady saying she was “completely overwhelmed by how much people care.”

Thank you so much to the children and families from the Edinburgh Academy Junior School for their amazing generosity. It is lovely to know that children are thinking of others at Christmas and we know you have made lots of people have a great Christmas time! We are looking forward to working with the school more in 2014.
