We continue to support and work with several charities/ groups including Police Scotland, Workplace Chaplaincy Scotland, Cash for Kids, Sam Radio, Edinburgh Children’s Charity, Owl Magic and more. In July, Owl Magic came along and provided an opportunity for shoppers to interact with the birds and raised £350 for Ayrshire Birds of Prey Centre. Overall, we raised £534 for charities during the month of July.
In July, Gyle gifted some old mannequins to Jupiter Artland for a workshop where they would be inviting the audience to draw and write on the mannequins, painted with chalkboard paint. Sustainability is one of their key values, so they were keen to use reused and upcycled materials.
During June and July, The Ladies that Lunch from ride a bus/HCL had lovely experiences, supplied by Morrison, Baguette Express and Gyle
Our charity work will remain a high priority at Gyle Shopping Centre.
