At Bright Purple, we love taking part in charity and fundraising activities to help support our local and wider communities. 

Based in the heart of Edinburgh, we wanted to make the most of the beautiful scenery on our doorstep, while giving ourselves a real challenge, so we are taking on the epic 7 Hills of Edinburgh Walk - a 14+ mile trek that includes 2,200ft of ascent up Edinburgh's main 7 hills.

Every pound you donate will go even further as we've teamed up with Zonal as our match-funding partners who will match whatever you donate!!

Cyrenians have been doing fantastic work in tackling the causes and consequences of homelessness throughout Edinburgh and across Scotland. We hope to be able to raise some funds to help a very worthy cause!

Here's what various donation amounts can do for Cyrenians:

£5 - Give a local household a recipe bag and ingredients to cook a healthy, balanced meal.

£7 (recommended, a pound per hill!) - provide someone in the local community enough food for 5 meals

£10 - Pay for an emergency food parcel to be delivered to someone in temporary accommodation

£25 - Pay for an hour's support and coffee with a member of Cyrenian's outreach team

£50 - Give 10 local households a recipe bag and ingredients to cook a healthy, balanced meal

£100 - Deliver 15 tonnes of surplus food to local community groups

£200 - Give 3 of Cyrenian's Cook School trainees REHIS accreditation providing professional opportunities.
