THANK YOU SO MUCH 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.

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.

Please support us at the Social in the Gardens – Friday 27th and Saturday 28th July, 10am – 8pm, Princes Street Gardens. This will be our first time at this event and we hope to do raise our profile, raise funds and have lots of fun. Hope to see you there.

    “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.”

Fun and Funds at the Festival

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.
