Meals over Monarchy


We all know next weekend is Edinburgh September weekend, but it is also a year on from the Independence Referendum.  We at EWFI feel the need to commemorate that in some small way.  We didn’t think that another rally preaching to the converted was the best use of our time, so we put our heads together to work out what would make like better for those who need it TODAY.  

As you may also know, on the 19th September Holyrood Palace is planning to celebrate the Queen becoming the longest serving monarch by hosting a Family Event Day: Crowns and Coronations. As a reflection, and a show of priorities, Edinburgh Women for Independence would like to invite you all to our biggest ever food bank drive. We will have volunteers collecting donations outside the Scottish Parliament building from 7am to 6pm, and also an online crowd funder live during these times.The palace is inviting you to “celebrate this important milestone with a day of fantastic family events” at a cost of £30.20 for a family ticket.£30.20 could help feed a family of four for a week.
