CalAid Edinburgh has drop off collection evenings on Tues and Thurs but the sooner these donations are received the better. CalAid are currently looking for:

  • Men’s shoes size EU7-9
  • Men’s gloves, hats, scarves
  • Tents, tarpaulins, sleeping bags, camp beds, sleeping mats, blankets and towels
  • Candles, matches, torches, batteries
  • Basic toiletries
  • Dry, packaged and tinned food that is easily transportable (products that do not contain gelatine or pork are important)
  • Books in varying languages, including French and English dictionaries
