    Story

    Last year QDCC created Ferry Elves to support families at Christmas through the COVID epidemic but soon realised we had other families living locally who needed a bit of support particularly at this time of year. We support 51 young people with toys, winter clothes and food by linking with other groups in the area and hope to do the same with your help again this year. There was a little bit left of money from last years donations which we used to provide Easter hampers and to allow some younger children to access summer activities that were out of their reach.

      You are all incredible; with your help we managed to get coats and gifts for 69 children in Queensferry and Dalmeny. We were lucky to get a grant from Almond neighbourhood network and help from the rotary so managed to get most coats and shoes as well. Thank you Anne and the elves -sounds like we should be a 50,s band!

      We have met our target THANK YOU ALL. We have also been lucky to receive a grant from city of Edinburgh and a generous donation of £300 from our local rotary to buy winter coats. We cannot turn off the just giving page until its been running 4 weeks but do have enough to cover Christmas. Any money remaining will be used to support some of these families throughout the year and try to look at supporting these children in joining local activities that they would otherwise miss out on.

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
