On Friday 28th October we will be hosting a Spooktacular Pub Quiz in Lulu’s bar, Edinburgh, where you can come along and test your wits against the living and the (brain) dead!
In keeping with our mission to help charities both at home and abroad we have picked another two fantastic causes Old MacDonald’s Farm & Vintage Vibes!
Old MacDonald’s Farm
Fifteen years ago we assisted Don MacDonald and his family make the move of a lifetime to Zambia. Fast forward to 2016 and after contacting accountants that we had helped to move overseas, we discovered the charity project they had set up all those years ago.
Don and his wife Christine began helping street children in Lusaka back in 2001, inviting them in every Sunday for a shower, a home cooked meal and to get some clean clothes. Noticing the sheer volume of street children in the local community, they felt something needed to be done to help. Old MacDonald’s Farm was born and has since combined several projects on the same site including a home for vulnerable children, a community school and a teaching farm. Over the years their family have grown rapidly with the addition of more young boys staying with them, and at one point they had 40 extra children! In 2013, the BBC made a documentary about the farm which highlighted just how appreciated the charity has become within the Lusaka community.
For our local charity we have chosen one which a member of our team (Tilly) volunteers with. Vintage Vibes is a service that pairs up volunteers with people in Edinburgh who are over 60 years old and are feeling isolated or lonely. The aim of the charity is to encourage friendship between all generations and provide companionship to those who need it most.
“I come from a big family and have always been very close with my grandparents who were always surrounded by many friends and family but many other older people are not as lucky… Vintage Vibes are making a real difference to over 60s in Edinburgh who are lonely and isolated – visiting them in their homes or going out for a walk or a coffee. For me, they were the obvious choice for a charity for us to support at our TGR Charity Quiz Night!”- Tilly
