The Edinburgh Clothing Store (ECS) is a charity run by volunteers, offering clothing, shoes, bedding, etc for people in genuine need. It’s a free service and no money changes hands.
Over 120 caring agencies including Health Visitors, Social Workers, Hostels for the Homeless, Women’s Aid, Job Centres and SACRO refer people to the ECS.
Around 1500 people are referred every year and the demand for their services is still rising.
You’ll see from this video – the ECS is right on our doorstep in Lower Granton Road.
Sandra Summers is co-ordinating our donations here at GPC, and she is happy to collect unwanted clothes from church – just bring your donations to church any Sunday and leave them for Sandra.
