With plans to launch our new Edinburgh design studio and showroom now on temporary hold due to the coronavirus outbreak, we have been thinking of how we can use our premises, staff volunteers and materials to help support some of the most vulnerable members of the community at this incredibly difficult time. We know how hard the current situation is for everyone, but have been so concerned to hear of the plight of the homeless in our city, and have decided to partner with Steps to Hope to raise funds and distribute supplies to them. Steps to Hope is a registered charity which supports the homeless and those suffering from addiction in Edinburgh. They provide an on-street presence to hand out the basic necessities to those in need, signpost people to relevant mutual aid groups and will pay for temporary shelter for those willing to make a change in their lives by taking a step towards recovery. The charity’s work is more important than ever during this unprecedented crisis and they desperately need support and funding from the public in order to continue to help some of the most vulnerable in our society. Our skilled craftsmen have been putting our workshop to good use to make reusable, sustainable and beautiful wooden crates which will provide a practical and efficient way for the Steps to Hope team to distribute supplies to those in need. Working from our premises in Edinburgh’s New Town, we will fill the boxes with whatever the Steps to Hope team tell us is required - anything from clean clothes and toiletries to books, blankets or a few treats to make this hard time a little easier - and deliver them as required. We’re raising funds to help fill those crates - our team’s time and materials will be donated completely free of charge, so every penny raised here will go to Steps of Hope, a proportion as a cash donation and the balance used to purchase items as specified by the charity. Anything you are able to donate will make a huge difference to this small local charity and to the lives of the people they support. https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/boxesofjoy
