Welcome to Bright Light 'out and about'
Find out what we are doing to raise awareness of our work, about partners we are working with to help raise much needed funds and how you can help us.
2017 was a high profile year that we will be building on. We celebrated our 70th anniversary with a Scottish Parliament Reception, Lord Provost of Edinburgh Reception and the magnificent looking Kelpies adopted our brand colours! Please support our work by taking part in our fundraising campaigns or consider joining us in one of our volunteer posts and be part of our planning and growth. We are looking for people now!
Vote for Bright Light please
Earlier this year Tesco customers supported our No to Loneliness in Leith work and we bagged £3,600 from Tesco’s Bags of Help community grant scheme. The next round of voting started on 1 May and we are delighted that Tesco customers have asked us to be included in the scheme again. Bags of Help is run in partnership with environmental charity Groundwork, and sees grants raised from the sale of carrier bags awarded to thousands of local community projects every year. Since launching in 2015, Bags of Help has provided more than £48 million to over 13,000 local community projects. You can vote for us at the following Edinburgh stores.
