Basics Bank 10am-1pm every Friday

January 1, 2020

Basics Bank runs every Friday from 10am to 1pm in the upstairs hall, in partnership with Edinburgh City Mission.  We provide food and toiletries to those going through a financial crisis, but also the opportunity for them and anyone else to enjoy coffee and a chat, and to play chess or other games if they want to.  

Supplies for Basics Bank are provided by Cyrenians FareShare, local supermarkets, and a network of churches, individuals and community groups, including the local SNP group and contacts of the local Greens group.   

Please feel free to visit any Friday.  For those needing food and toiletries, we have a referrals system, which you can learn about at
