The Mitten Tree 2016

The first ever Wilson Memorial Mitten Tree collected donations of over 50 hats, scarves, gloves, mitts, and socks.  The tree was wonderfully laden with woolly gifts to help keep people warm in times of need this winter.

13 local families who have been receiving aid from our Basics Bank were given items from the tree, and the remainder were given to The Salvation Army for distribution to people throughout the Edinburgh area.

Many thanks to everybody who made donations.
