๐Ÿ Did you know that the best thing you can do for (since they have lost 97% of their habitat) is to plant bee-friendly flowers in your garden?

๐ŸŒป We are fundraising to plant bee-friendly flowers on our allotment on campus

๐ŸŒผHelp us they need us as much as we need them


๐Ÿ Thank you!


Today on we want to look back and commemorate what women have achieved throughout history because it is too easily forgotten.

We want to THANK all those brave WOMEN, like the Suffragettes, who fought for our rights. Thanks to them we can vote, wear trousers, have a bank account, decide what to do with our bodies, go to university...

We also want to THANK all WOMEN who stand up for themselves to denounce abuse, to break the glass ceiling, fight against injustice and to demand equal rights and opportunities. Especially women who live in countries where standing up for themselves or defending the Earth can cost them their lives.

Women have been kept silent for thousands of years. We miss their voices in our history books, in our philosophy classes and their recognition in science. That's why troughout this week we will commemorate FEMALE ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS.

Any donations count! Big or small๐Ÿ’š


If you have been keeping an eye on our social media then you will know some members of our society are fundraising this Christmas for a charity called Cyrenians who help homeless people all over Scotland! ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ณ๓ ฃ๓ ด๓ ฟ
As well as a fundraiser we are also collecting food to take to their food bank.

Whilst we are doing this as a company we would invite anyone who wants to donate any food items to do so by either messaging Laura Coull (musselburgh) or Lauren Shaw (city centre) to arrange a pick up for your donations.

Donations can be as small as a tin of beans or anything bigger! ๐Ÿฅซ

A list of things food banks need at this time and will be appreciated are :
-pasta/rice in packets
-baked beans
-spaghetti hoops
-tinned meat such as corned beef
-long life milk
-tinned veg
-cup a soup
-mug shots
-pasta sauce

And basically anything that can be kept for a length of time in a cupboard.

If you are unable to donate food, check out our fundraiser below and feel free to share! ๐Ÿ’œโœจ
