It is estimated that by Spring 2021, 82,100 people in Edinburgh will be living below the poverty line.
This Christmas, we want to meet the basic needs of food, shelter and clothing in our city by doing two things:
(1) Raising money for partner projects and charities
(2) Donating underwear
We want to raise £20,000 for our partner projects – Bethany Christian Trust, the Hampers Project & Soul Food.
We want to donate 82,100 new and good quality items of underwear to those in need this winter.
Since 2009, we have raised over £270,000 for projects both at home and abroad. Just Christmas is an invitation to do Christmas differently – focussing on giving to others in recognition of the gift of life we have been given through Jesus.
