Music for ALL collected 14 bags of hats, gloves scarves for people who are homeless. We delivered these to Streetwork just before Christmas. A brilliant way to make Christmas more meaningful, and thank you to Edna (Michael’s mum) for the idea and thanks to all who contributed.
Contributions from Nelson Hall Groups added bags from Craigmiller Groups and all into Alison’s car
arrived at Streetworks to many thanks and appreciation.
Music for ALL has some spaces available on Thursday morning. The course programmes are available on the Music for ALL page of this website. Please do email Alison on [email protected] or phone 0131 446 6873 for more information.
Columcille will be closed from 4pm on Friday 12th July and will reopen on Monday 29th July. This is our annual summer break.
3 people from Columcille will attend this event on 3rd May in the morning. We will update after the event
Over the last several months we have been purchasing new items for Columcille. The cafe has new flooring, new cutlery and beautiful new aprons. The craft room has new shelving, flooring and new paint work. More work is planned to upgrade the joinery area and change the ffice space. We very much appreciate the income form charitable trusts that enables us to make these improvements.
In January we said farewell to Grace Canham who has been fundraising for Columcille for 3 years. Grace has raised a substantial amount of money over this time – many thanks to Grace and to the charitable trusts and other donors who have supported us. Grace has moved on to work as a fundraiser for the Homeless World Cup.
We have settled back into the post- Christmas way of life at Columcille and now look forward to our Burns Lunch on Tuesday 29th January and the St Brides play and celebration on Tuesday 5th February
