The Warehouse is Reopening !
provisionally, that is!
ON WEDNESDAY 15 JULY
with precautions
If sending goods by post or courier, please address them to    29 Starbank Rd., EH5 3BY    and NOT to the warehouse

Precautions

  1. Please do not enter the warehouse itself! Instead, please place your donations on the table which you will find just inside the entrance, or the pallet beside it. Please do not go beyond the table.
  2. if your donation needs unloading from a car, and there is another car already there, please do not drive into the yard if. Instead, park nearby, and phone ( a number will be posted on the gate, and this website); our volunteers staffing the warehouse will call you back when the yard is clear.
  3. if there is someone already at the table, please do not approach; space out as at supermarkets etc.
OPENING TIMES: 11:30 am to 2:30 pm Wednesdays and Sundays

what happens next -- where is it going -- what's it all for ?

Incoming goods will be carefully packed, sorted and boxed and palleted. When 40 or so pallets are ready (about 10 tons) a 40' shipping container will be ordered. When it comes, warehouse volunteers stuff it full and send it on its way, first by lorry to Grangemouth, then by way of several container ships to a port near to its final destinations; which is most likely via Turkey to the refugees in and near Idlib in the North-West corner of Syria.

With your help, we will do it again this winter.
