In response to the Rock Trust's Christmas shoebox appeal, OSP members gave 15 full boxes, with enough goods to make up a further five boxes. Together with St Margaret's, a total of 55 boxes were donated. Donations to the appeal meant that young people who often have no contact with their families could have a gift to open at Christmas.
In addition to the shoeboxes, a total of £717.72 was also raised for the Rock Trust from collections at the services of Advent Carols and Nine Lessons and Carols.
The Rock Trust is an Edinburgh-based charity which works with young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. This includes young people who are in transitions, leaving care or home and those involved in offending, alcohol or drug misuse.
