Description

Volunteers will be helping in the production of making Items from our own Greyfriars tartan which will include. soft toys, purses, bags, kilts ect.
All these items will then go on sale to generate additional funds which will provide learning opportunities to adults who have or are experiencing homelessness, abuse, addiction, poor mental/physical health, loneliness, and social isolation. Embracing an asset-based approach, we provide free meals and skill-based activities to empower participants to re-connect and boost their self-esteem and social capital.
