Fresh Start


On 27th May, despite the miserable weather, the St Cuthbert’s team managed to complete the eight mile walk, from Stockbridge via the Water of Leith Visitor Centre and Colinton Dell to Fountainbridge, in record time and enjoyed the much needed refreshments provided.

FreshStart2016Thank you to all of you who gave so generously to sponsor the walkers. Total sponsorship was £415.00 which with gift aid will bring the amount raised to nearly £500.00.


St.Cuthbert’s usually does a collection for this charity in March

Fresh Start was set up by a group of churches and works in different ways to help homeless people into their own accommodation.  

They are particularly looking for:

  • dishes and cutlery, glasses (not wine glasses or any glasses advertising alcohol)
  • pots and pans
  • bed linen and towels
  • small electrical items
  • cleaning goods.
