Edinburgh City In the Community

This week we were delighted to be able to deliver a van full of food and household essentials to the Space & Broomhouse Hub in the West of Edinburgh.

Our Youth section coordinator Wendy Anderson and first team manger James McDonaugh were on hand to load up, make the delivery and see the incredible facilities that the Space provides for the local community. Their Hub provides a wide range of support services, from youth and families to the elderly and those affected with mental health issues. Our donation will directly help the Young Carers aspect of the Space, which is coordinated by Julie Scott.

Everyone involved with Edinburgh City would like to thank The Weir Charitable Trust for the invaluable grant funding and in particular Lorraine Tait, Trust Manager who worked closely with Wendy and ECYFC during the process of the award. Lorraine kindly awarded us an extension from the original award so we could better impact those in need post-Christmas.

The Club will be returning to the Space in the near future with a second batch of essentials and we look forward to forming a close relationship with Julie and the rest of her team.
