We're the new 'Heriot-Watt in the Community' society. We want to help people in the local community. Interested? Contact Meg by clicking the email icon below.
Our society is primarily concerned with facilitating and organising events, fundraisers, and projects in support of the wider-community of Edinburgh. To get this society off the ground and running, we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join the team. We aim to have fun whilst also making a positive difference to the lives of others in our local community.
How to get involved?
Yes, we know, spending your free time engaging in **free labour** (gasp!) seems shocking to some, but there is a wealth of benefits that can be expected from spending a few hours weekly/monthly giving back to others...
What events are on?
Given the current economic and social climate, there has been a 47% increase in food bank usage across Trussel Trust food banks in Edinburgh (see article below.) The society is organising a non-perishable goods collection, as the beginning of our first and hopefully monthly event. Regardless of whether you can spare a few pennies at the end of your food shop, or can contribute a few tins collecting dust from the back of your cupboard - every little really does help.
