I told you about the event Anne Baird organised for us at Craigie’s  – you can read about it (and see some photos) here

Yesterday I popped out to Craigie’s  to collect the cheque so I took Ellie along for company.

She thought it was a lovely place and for the short time she was there, got plenty attention!!

Anyway, here is the team photo for collecting the very lovely large (in every sense) cheque.

Thank you, John, Kirsteen, Anne and all the staff and customers at Craigie’s.  We very much appreciate your wonderful contribution to our fundraising.

Craigie’s Farm Shop and Deli, South Queensferry
Zest health and beauty salons, Haddington place and The Braids, Edinburgh

When?   Saturday 10 to Sunday 25 December 2011

Cost?      A donation of £1 or £2 appreciated per message

how to do it  Donate via our virginmoneygiving page and write a message – we will then rewrite the message onto one of our tags and hang it from our trees – and post a photo online so you can see it!

Want to celebrate christmas by putting a message for loved ones or a wish (one lady has wished for a kind, handsome man, many of course are wishing for health and happiness in 2012 but you can wish for anything you like) onto one of our tags and we will add them to our three trees in St Andrew Square gardens.  We have named these three trees Faith, Hope and Charity for the next two weeks!

We also have wishing trees inside Craigie’s Farm shop and Zest salons so feel free to pop along to them and add a tag to their trees.

Perhaps your business, school, university might consider taking some of our tags and asking staff to participate – please get in touch and we will gladly deliver some tags and a collecting box to you.

Our volunteers will be in the gardens (weather permitting ) most lunchtimes and part of the day at weekends starting on Saturday 10 December.

Here are a small selection of those already written
