Help people who have been homeless have HO-t, HO-t, HO-t meal

HELP us by digging deep this Christmas for our Cookers for Christmas appeal - and ensure previously homeless families can have a ‘HO-t, HO-t, HO-t’ meal.

We’re launching our #cookersforchristmas appeal today - and are urging people to donate just a £5 to help us provide cookers for 150 families and individuals.

We need less than 1% of Edinburgh residents to donate just £5 to make sure we meet last year’s total.


There will be families and individuals in Edinburgh this Christmas who sit down to a cold Christmas dinner. For families who have recently been housed, a cooker is often too expensive. But with your help we can ensure some of those households don’t have to sit down to a cold meal again.

This year, our new innovative Cooker re-use service will mean we can help many more people than in previous years. Historically the Cookers for Christmas donations were used to buy new cookers.

But our new Electrical Workshop at the Food Station means we can test donated cookers, which will be passed onto clients, meaning we can increase the number of people we can help.

Help us make someone’s Christmas by donating on our Fresh Start Cookers for Christmas Just Giving Page, and spread the word through social media using #cookersforchristmas
