BBC, artists, and many more donate to Edinburgh Crisis Centre fundraiser!

A host of amazing items have been donated to the Edinburgh Crisis Centre for a fundraising event being held in the capital later this month.

The Edinburgh Crisis Centre is one of only a handful of mental health crisis centres in Scotland. It provides a 24 hour helpline for people in the capital aged 16 years or over and a safe private space for people in distress to receive support, including overnight accommodation if required.

The event at the Leith Ex-Serviceman’s Club (7 Smith’s Place, EH6 8NT) on Friday 25 August hopes to raise money which will go towards maintaining and refurbishing the Centre.
