(from www.lifeandwork.org)

 

A Scottish homelessness charity is giving festive shoppers the opportunity to help save a life this winter by purchasing ethical Christmas trees.

Caring Christmas Trees, a unique social enterprise that has been running for 16 years, supports the work of Bethany Christian Trust’s Care Shelter and other winter projects.

Under the scheme, shoppers can order a Christmas Tree online and pick them up from various locations in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Fife. They are also available for delivery at in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The trees are Grade One Nordman firs, sustainably grown in Scotland.

Kevin Downie, Project Co-ordinator at Bethany Christian Trust, said: “I am delighted to see Bethany’s Caring Christmas Trees project back on this year. For the past 16 years, we have been giving folk across Scotland the chance to make a purchase with purpose. Of course you could buy your tree elsewhere, but with Caring Christmas Trees you not only get a beautiful real tree, you get to make a difference in someone's life.”

Established in 1983, Bethany Christian Trust supports over 7,000 people across Scotland. The charity’s services focus on preventing homelessness as well as alleviating the suffering of people who are homeless. The Winter Care Shelter provides a hot meal and a safe place to sleep for those with nowhere to go during the coldest months of the year.
