Edinburgh Recovery Activities (ERA) are running a toy appeal over the Christmas period helping families within the community.
They are looking particularly for gifts that would suit 15 and 16 year old boys and girls. They are also looking for selection boxes and Christmas bags.
As ERA is an EVOC project, they are based in EVOC’s offices. If you are dropping by for a meeting, event or training, you can ask for a member of the ERA team at reception and donate a gift or ask for more information on their work.
ERA – Edinburgh Recovery Activities – is a project set up to provide fulfilling and enjoyable experiences for those in recovery. Trips, groups, meet-ups, one off events and training.
