Edinburgh Direct Aid - Blankets and Donation Point

BeGreen has been awash with colour over the last week thanks to Venetta Evans and her dedicated team of volunteers. Our window space was booked out by Venetta so that she could let everyone see the stunning blankets that they have been working so hard to make. The blankets have been created by donated 6 inch square pieces then sown together to make large cosy covers. These will then be donated and sent to Syria via Edinburgh Direct Aid. Venetta explained, "We have had so many people from all over donating squares to us. We are very grateful. We have produced 31 blankets so far. These will go by road to Syria in October but we plan to continue the project so if anyone would like to help out please pop in to BeGreen for an information leaflet."

Not only has BeGreen been home to the lovely blanket display but we have also have been a drop off point for donations for Edinburgh Direct Aid. This is has been in conjunction with the Dunbar Rotary Club. 

Anouska, BeGreen Community Co-ordinator, "The office has been so busy over the last week with people popping in to find out more about how they can help with knitting or dropping off donations. We have been completely overwhelmed, people have dropped off such a variety of items, from toiletries to cosy clothing. It hopefully will really help make a bit of a difference to peoples lives. It really shows you just how great a local community we have. It's lovely to be part of.
