Stockbridge Local raise funds for LifeCare

Over 100 locals and traders from the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh gathered at the Grange Club, who kindly provided the use of their elegant venue free of charge and, along with generous donations from Pickerings Gin who laid on a fantastic drinks reception, there were delicious canapés and support from Armstrong’s of Stockbridge, George Mewes Cheese, Kenji Sushi, The Stockbridge Restaurant and Street Box Thai.

The event was in aid of LifeCare which helps elderly become independent in Stockbridge and raised £1,500.  

I can’t thank the local community enough for their support and generous donations of prizes, raffle ticket purchases and support. This event was a great opportunity to bring Stockbridge locals and business owners together to enjoy some fine food and drink in The Grange Club’s stunning surrounds while raising funds for a local charity which has just celebrated its 75th anniversary.

In excess of thirty prizes worth over £1,000 were raffled from a range of businesses including:  Bamboo Boutique, Good Brother’s, Hectors, Patisserie Florentin and The Raeburn.   

The auction of a piece of colourful abstract artwork of Arran, called ‘Sunset Coast’, which was generously donated by local Tommy Fitchett of Saorsa Art, based in Stockbridge raised an incredible £260.  The entertaining auction was conducted by local JoJo Hernandez, owner of Stockbridge’s Lilies & Dreams and the winning bid came from yet another local, Harry Crombie of Stockbridge’s property management company Crombie & Co
