Last month two lovely locals, Rachel & Katherine organised a wonderful coffee morning in Stockbridge as part of the Scottish Refugee Council “Cup of Tea with a Refugee” campaign. This event came about after they had attended another one organised earlier in the year and were keen to get involved somehow.
It was great to see so many locals come together to welcome newcomers, especially on such a rainy day! The event raised £204.61 for The Welcoming. This is such a generous donation from the local community, and it will go along way to ensuring we are able to keep supporting migrants and refugees in Edinburgh.
A huge thank you to Rachel & Katherine for organising and coordinating the event, and to everyone who donated money, cake and time on the day. If you would like to keep in touch with events at The Welcoming, you can register as a Friend of The Welcoming or check our Volunteer page for any current opportunities to get involved.
