Donations for those caught up in Craigievar House fire

East Craigs Church Centre is being offered as a temporary donations collection venue in support of the residents of Craigievar House who are affected and have been displaced by yesterday’s serious fire.

The East Craigs Church Centre will be open to receive donations in support of the victims of yesterday’s fire during the following hours: today (Thursday, 15 June) and tomorrow (Friday, 16 June) from 5.00pm to 7.00pm and Saturday and Sunday from 12noon to 2.00pm. The church is collaborating with the Corstorphine Community Centre on this.

We will update what is needed once we have more detail. At the moment the following will be useful:

Toiletries, and toothpaste/ brushes, deodorants, hair brushes/ combs & sunscreen, new underwear & clothing for adults and children.

Footwear for adults and children.

Toys, teddies and games for children.

Non perishable food items.

Hold back with actually dropping off furniture and electricals until the families have confirmed what they actually are in need of.

We are not accepting cash donations, but understand there is a JustGiving campaign set up (although we are not able to vouch for its credibility yet).
