Grateful thanks are due to everyone who contributed one way or another to last Sunday’s appeal for food, toiletries and cash to help the homeless. Over £400 was raised to help support Canongate Kirk’s commitment to feeding the homeless in the coming winter months, and Streetwork, the resource centre in Holyrood Road, was delighted to receive our substantial donations of food and toiletries.
