Each year our church raises funds for a particular project. Last year we raised more than £3000 for the Mango Tree school project in Kenya. Thanks to everyone who donated!
This year, we are supporting Action for Children: The Gilmerton Road Project. This is a service that aids families across Edinburgh and the Lothians who have a child with a learning disability or severe behavioral issues. It helps families live the lives they want by providing fun, inclusive and flexible support. This includes short break care, and specialist education and leisure opportunities.
Gilmerton Road is a home from home setting and has cared for hundreds of children from Edinburgh and the Lothians since it opened in 1998. The service supports children with learning disabilities and their families. With gardens and a sensory room all of the children in its care can flourish. Overnight stays allow children and young people to develop new skills, socialise, and gain independence.
