On the 13th December the Granton Baptist Church hosted PEP’s 2018 Christmas show; the hall was packed with up to 140 people who came along to enjoy the festive evening.
Dancers from the ‘Edinburgh Dance Academy’ kicked off the evening with a variety of routines. Their dancing was amazing and the girls and boys wowed the audience with their talent and inspired routines and costumes. They are always a delight to watch!
The Co-op Local Community Fund helps to support local projects that our members care about. Since its launch in 2017, Co-op members have raised £39 million pounds for over 12,000 local causes. We’re delighted that Pilton Equalities Project will now be able to access this funding opportunity.
Recently the Friday Neighbourhood Group has been visiting the new ‘Community Shed’ at North Edinburgh Arts.
They are currently making a garden bench from reclaimed wood for PEP’s garden. The wood includes old floorboards burnt in a fire and the group have been sanding them down to make them useable. The seat will also have inserted glass beads as decoration.
After almost two years of hard work, PEP literacy learner Stuart had the opportunity to launch his new book!
Stuart Runciman is a young man with cerebral palsy and has attended literacy sessions at PEP for many years. Stuart has always had a passion for action movies and thriller novels, so two years ago with the support of his dedicated keyworker Gerry, he decided it was time he would write his own novel.
