Destiny Xmas Appeal

The GameChanger Wellbeing Centre at Easter Road is demonstrating its value to local community groups – with the free to use space being increasingly used and helping deliver some big results.

The space, in the Famous Five Stand on the north side of Easter Road Stadium, is available for community and charity groups to use, provided they are signed up as GameChangerpartners.

At the moment, around XX events and meetings take place every month, with the use continuing to grow.

The space demonstrated its value superbly well during the Edinburgh Cheer campaign, when GameChanger partners Destiny Angels used the space as their HQ to create Christmas hampers for local individuals and families in need.

In previous years, the group has managed to feed around 1000 people through their hamper programme, but with access to the space and with the help of GameChanger and local business volunteers that figure was doubled.

Liz Bowes of Destiny Angels said: “It has been a huge help to us to be able to base ourselves at the Wellbeing Centre, and to set up a really efficient operation. We also had great help from volunteers from local businesses, and logistical support from Tesco as well as a donation of food.”
