Here you will find some information on our friendships with organisations in Edinburgh. We are extremely proud to be able to support these organisations so please have a look at the information below and pay their websites a visit.
Maggie's Centre, Edinburgh
We are immensely proud to be a friend of Maggie’s Centre, Edinburgh, through its Christmas trees operating company.
In 2016, we officially started to work with them through our CrimboTree Christmas tree sales. We raised enough to cover the running costs of 1 full day at Maggie’s Edinburgh, and in 2017 we increased this to over £3000. We thank everyone for their support with this project. In the future, we are also hoping to supply volunteers to support Maggie’s events and other projects.
Maggie’s Centre’s expertise is freely available to everyone in one-to-one sessions, workshops or support groups. To find more please visit their website (www.maggiescentres.org).
BATs Youth Rugby, Edinburgh
We are delighted to be supporting Edinburgh Academicals (“Accies”) BATs Rugby and the fantastic work that they do for youth rugby in Edinburgh.
We have been involved with the club for a number of years: sponsoring their yearly Minis tournament has allowed the club to invest in equipment covering all the year groups from P1 to P7, and also the P7 trip to England to play local teams. We hope that with our sponsorship, the BATs team will continue to grow, making the sport more accessible to young people in the community and developing Scotland’s next generation of senior players.
More information on BATs, and how you can support them, can be found in our blog article, outlining who they are and the fantastic opportunities they offer to youth rugby in our city.
We are very lucky to have such festive friends right on our door step……it means our reception area is always full of festive cheer every December.
Crimbo Trees offers real Nordman Fir Christmas trees sourced from small, Scottish tree growers. It is their goal to help create fantastic Christmas memories for you and your family and support the amazing work carried out by all the team at Maggie’s, Edinburgh.
So, its time to recycle your old artificial tree and enjoy the sight (and smell!) of a real tree next December!
