Thank you to Debbie, Robyn and Craig for cycling in the Pedal for Scotland Wee Jaunt 10 Miler. They cycled from Linlithgow to Edinburgh with a few mishaps along the way. Debbie had to carry Craig’s bike with a burst tyre for the last mile!
Thank you to everybody who supported them including family, friends and customers.
The team raised £201 for the All Together Edinburgh charity shop training centre.
Thank you so much for your support
Thank you for your support
With your support All Together managed to raise over £1100 at the Leith Learning Disability Event, Leith Festival and Meadows Festival. Our dedicated team of volunteers ran a stall selling clothes, jewellery, vinyl and tombola. Everyone had great fun meeting people from different areas and letting them know about the All Together charity shop/training centre in Leith. A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped out on the stalls and to all our loyal supporters who came along on the day.
We also raised £350 at The Social in the Gardens in July. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped.
We are please to announce that all of our 2017/18 trainees graduated at the White House, Craigmillar on Wednesday 18th April.
The graduates addressed the audience and said that they had gained confidence, retail and work skills. They said they enjoyed working in the shop and look forward to moving on to work or college. They were presented with their certificate by the All Together team:
Well done!! A big thank you to everyone who attended the event or helped make it a great night. A special thank you to Darren, Bob, Michael, Noel, Brian, Angie, and Bill.

All Together Edinburgh raised a total of £698 during our last three events!
Debbie walked 1.7 miles over the new, amazing Queensferry Crossing Bridge on Sunday, 2nd September and raised £135 for All Together Edinburgh.
“This was a once in a lifetime experience. I loved walking across the tallest bridge in the U.K and reading the information signs that showed all the work and precision that went into creating and building this spectacular bridge. There were breathtaking views and many people who commented that they were very proud to be Scottish.”
A huge thanks to everyone who helped and supported our charity!
All Together Edinburgh raised a whopping £600 over the 2 days at the Meadows Festival and £225 at the Leith Festival day. A huge thanks to everyone who helped and supported our charity. All the volunteers enjoyed themselves selling vintage clothes, accessories, antiques and tickets for the tombola. We also had great fun setting up the gazebo. We think we’ve got the hang of it now. It was a great team effort. All monies raised go directly to our charity shop/training centre in Leith.
We have had 64 people gain qualifications in the shop and 75% have moved into paid employment, voluntary work or college. We have 10 people in our training programme all hoping to finish with a Ready for Retail, Work Skills 1 or Cleaning Skills certificate.
We are please to announce that all of our 2016/17 trainees graduated at the White House, Craigmillar on Wednesday 22nd February. They enjoyed a great evening including a slideshow, certificate presentation, rendition of “Love me Tender” by Gordon (our very own Elvis) and a superb buffet provided by the White House Kitchen.
