Lifeline participates in S6 Conference: June 2011
Lifeline was invited to take part in this Annual Conference at which pupils from Craigmount, Forrester, St Augustine’s, Tynecastle and Royal High Schools came together for two days to learn about the work of a number of charities. The pupils then prepared and delivered presentations about their allotted charity.
23 pupils drawn from the 5 schools produced entertaining and well-researched presentations about Lifeline. We would like to thank all the students for their engagement with the task, the good questions that they asked and the creative presentations they delivered.
Thanks to Bethany Millar who drew this simple and striking Lifeline poster. Bethany’s team included Fraser Cullen, Sakine Simsek and Kieran Scott.
Congratulations to the 23 walkers who joined us on a beautiful, sunny day on 9 April 2011 to complete a half marathon or a quarter marathon down the Water of Leith Walkway.
And a huge thank you to all our walkers and upporters, who have managed to raise a total of £1,378 so far. Your efforts help us keep our doors open to women in need of emotional and practical support in Edinburgh.
