CCU Support Those in Need This Christmas

Helping others gives Christmas meaning to us.
We’re dazzled by expensive gifts and fancy decorations so this is often forgotten about.
That’s why our staff have been busy finding ways to give back this year.

Social Bite

We’ve donated the staff’s dress-down-Friday collection to Edinburgh-based, Social Bite, to help the homeless and vulnerable this Christmas.
We’re all so pleased that it’s going to such a great cause.
Social Bite will use the donation to provide Christmas dinner or an emergency winter food pack on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day to those in need.
£5 is all it takes to bring joy and warmth to one person. Truly a wonderful gift we can all give this Christmas.
 
If you want to get involved you can donate here:

Granton Primary School

We turned into Santa’s little helpers and donated Christmas presents to 20 kids from Granton Primary School in Edinburgh.
The gifts were split into two categories: kids who would appreciate an arty type of gift and those who would benefit from a STEM gift (science/technology etc).
Let’s remember what Christmas is all about and always be on the look out for ways we can give back to the less fortune. People helping people is how we’ll strengthen our community in 2022 and beyond.
