    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Families often struggle to make ends meet at Christmas and many can't afford to give their kids the type of Christmas Day that the media suggests we're all having.

    Since 2015, we've been organising our hugely successful Festive Feast for families who are referred by a range of partner organisations in Edinburgh. We treat our guests to a traditional, three-course festive meal at a city centre restaurant, with a complementary taxi to get to and from the event. We also gift each family a supermarket voucher so they can buy some extra treats during the holiday period.

    The meal is cooked by our resident, award winning chef, Colin Hinds; founder of Kilted Lobster and it's associated social enterprise, Cooking Up a Storm and this year Colin is kindly hosting us at his restaurant in Stockbridge. Festive Feast hopefully allows families to enjoy Christmas Day and remove some of the stress and isolation that people often experience at this time of year.

    Thank you for your support!!
