Although the Fresh Start warehouse at Ferry Road has been closed since March, the staff, based at the Community Hub, have been busy working with the local community serving those in need with food parcels and in many other supportive ways.
The new development of the Shop and Pantry in premises adjoining the warehouse will soon be alive and active. The warehouse is to re-open as follows:
- On Tuesdays and Thursdays only, donations will be received at the warehouse
- Please RING BEFORE YOU BRING on 0131 476 7741 to make an appointment between 9.00-3.30pm on one of these days – this will assist us in our track and trace procedure, should it be required.
- Duvets, pillows, cushions and bric-a-brac cannot be received as there is no space to quarantine them
- All other starter pack items are welcome
So if you have had a major sortout of your linen, or any other, cupboard during lockdown now is your opportunity to offload goods and help Fresh Start to help folk make a home for themselves. There is a very good website if you want to know more.
