Newkirkgate Shopping Centre Leith Is Appealing


The Newkirkgate Shopping Centre in Leith has teamed up with Edinburgh based charity, Children with Cancer and Leukaemia, Advice and Support for Parents (CCLASP), in an appeal to shoppers to help spread some Easter cheer this year.

Visitors to the centre are being asked to buy or donate an extra Easter egg, and leave them at a specially designed drop-off point at the community centre within the Newkirkgate.

The Easter eggs will be donated to CCLASP which was set up over 20 years ago to help support children with Cancer and Leukaemia and their families across Scotland.

Scott Darroch, centre manager for Newkirkgate Shopping Centre, said: “Each year many of us are lucky enough to receive lots of Easter eggs from our friends and loved ones and often many of these go to waste. This year, we are encouraging those throughout the city to either buy or donate an extra Easter egg and gift it to a superb local cause.

“CCLASP provides an outstanding support service for thousands of children and their families in Edinburgh each year and we would love to help put a smile on the faces of some of these children this Easter.”

Valerie Simpson, CEO and founder of CCLASP, said: “Many of the children and families we support are going through some of the most difficult times in their lives and anything we can do to create some joy and happiness for them is always very welcome. We thank the Newkirkgate Shopping Centre for their support.”
