EDG helps Welcome Organisation to Create Change

EDG continued its efforts to support the Welcome Organisation, its chosen charity for 2017, by volunteering  at its drop-in centre.  Annette Cadden, Naomi Lamont, James Hutchison and Ian McFarland spent an afternoon working between the Street Gems project, where they were upcycling furniture which will be sold to raise funds, and the food donations section, where they sorted provisions to ensure that they are properly stored.

EDG staff were very impressed by the Welcome Organisation’s facility and interested to see not only how it works but also how our fundraising campaign can help the charity.

It is intended to continue this initiative later in the year by sending more volunteers to assist in the valuable work carried out by the Welcome Organisation.
