Team effort to support Basics Bank this Christmas

LendingCrowd has teamed up with local businesses Logicalware, R&B distillers and IDE Legal this Christmas to fundraise and collect food to donate to the Basics Bank project run by Edinburgh City Mission.

Basics Bank supports people in Edinburgh in difficult situations such as being homeless or in temporary accommodation, escaping from violence, being unemployed or facing debt problems, among others in need. Their work involves assessing the need of each individual and referring them to appropriate support services as well as providing people with food and hygiene items. The project depends on local individuals, churches and schools to regularly give up their time and has 7 different locations across Edinburgh with one open every day of the week.

Organised by one of our borrower companies Logicalware, the fundraising campaign has been extremely successful with employees getting involved with donating food or money and both LendingCrowd and Logicalware matching what has been raised.

The money has been used to buy food items such as pasta, cereal, tea and coffee, different tinned foods and boxes of biscuits and chocolates, which have been delivered to Basics Bank to make up Christmas parcels for those in need in Edinburgh over the festive season.

The donation page is still running and any money left over will be sent to Basics Bank for them to use in their other work supporting people facing a crisis. If you are able to donate you can do so here.

Thank you in advance for your help and happy Christmas from everyone at LendingCrowd!
