The Good Cause in St Mark’s in October
ST CATHARINE’S HOMELESS PROJECT

The good cause in October continues to be The St Catharine’s Convent Homeless Project.

The homeless project gives support to the homeless in Edinburgh, the number of whom is increasing all the time. As well as serving over 90,000 free meals a year, the project offers a huge range of services, from guidance with job applications; help for support groups for addicts; to counselling and help in seeking medical assistance. The project is used by up to two hundred people a day. These range from long-term homeless people who are sleeping rough or staying in hostels around the city, to old age pensioners who bus in from their flats in the Edinburgh estates for a meal and some company.
 

On Friday evenings, two people from St Mark’s help serving the meals.
If you would like to be a part of this worthwhile initiative, please speak to
