Come along to one of our events

40th Anniversary Celebration

The 40th Anniversary Celebration will take place virtually on the 26th November at 7pm, via Zoom.

Special guest speakers include world renowned Scottish classical composer and conductor, Sir James MacMillan, one of the world’s most prolific and best loved authors, Alexander McCall Smith CBE, and the wonderful Scottish broadcaster and writer, Sally Magnusson.

The highlight of the evening include inputs from all three VIP guests, in addition a panel discussion and a question and answer session. There will also be a range of musical interludes highlighting some of MacMillan’s music and the talents of local school pupils from George Watson’s College.

 

The ticket price of £40 is per log on so a couple or small family group can join our virtual event – all monies raised will support the ongoing delivery of care services to vulnerable people throughout Edinburgh.

Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite.
