Ash Denham MSP has commended the generosity of her constituents for their continued donations to the Edinburgh School Uniform Bank over the summer holidays.
The Edinburgh School Uniform Bank provides good-quality school uniform and other clothing, equipment and supplies required for the school to children affected by poverty across the capital.
The charity aims to provide the children most affected by financial hardship go to school with dignity and the right uniform to make the most of their education.
This morning Ash Denham MSP joined charity Carr Gomm to help launch their new campaign “Stomp Out Loneliness”.
The campaign aims to stomp out loneliness in communities across Scotland by raising £30,000 to fund a variety of local projects and activities tackling social isolation.
Ash Denham MSP spoke at the event and did some cycling to help raise awareness of the importance of being active.
Aiming to bring people together, the “Stomp Out Loneliness” campaign encourages individuals to pledge a target distance to add to the charity’s 1000 mile route around Scotland.
Miles can be completed in any manner, by cycling, running, swimming or pushing wheelchairs.
All money raised will go to funding local events and projects in communities across Scotland.
