Jim Slaven Announces End of Helping Hands
Published at : 01 Jan 2021
Helping Hands have ended our activities with immediate effect.
It has been an incredible success and a privilege to be part of this brilliant organisation. We have achieved everything we set out to achieve and more. When Brad and I founded Helping Hands the first priority was food for hungry families in Edinburgh housing schemes. Our volunteers were out today providing food in the same communities with the same solidarity and enthusiasm.
Everything we have done over the last 6 years has been about encouraging people to organise themselves and be dependent on nobody. Not even Helping Hands.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us. To all the communities, families and kids we have worked with. And thank you to our wonderful Helping Hands volunteers for putting up with us both.
