A Much-Needed Boost for the Care Van

On Sunday 9 April, a retiring collection was held for the ongoing work of the Care Van. It raised an excellent £306 including Gift Aid. All involved offer sincere thanks to those who have so generously.

During this quarter, any donations through the after-service teas and coffees will also go to the Care Van.

The Care Van offers hot soup, hot drinks, sometimes warm clothes and blankets, and a friendly ear to those in crisis and living on the streets of our city. The Craigsbank and East Craigs team go out as part of an evening rota covering Waverley Bridge, Grassmarket and North Bridge.
