As a charity, we rely on our volunteers for support, and on local trusts, foundations and businesses to help us with our fundraising. This is true now more than ever as we have just launched a fundraising appeal to raise £25,000 in order to safeguard the future of our centre and the vital family services it provides to the people of Leith until more sustainable, long term funding can be secured.

If we are going to hit our target we need the support of the whole community for the #backdrbells campaign.

If you have time to give, do consider becoming a community fundraiser for Dr Bell’s Family Centre. You will receive full training and a presentation pack that you can take round to local clubs, organisations, schools and businesses.

If you would like to make a donation you can do so directly on our fundraising page or at the centre – and if you are a UK tax payer do ask for a giftaid certificate to maximise your contribution. Alternatively, why not organise your own fundraising event to #backdrbells and get friends and family involved ? From a bakesale to a sponsored walk, every penny counts.
