Merchiston is pleased to be supporting an amazing challenge being undertaken by a former pupil.
It is important that your son understands the reality of the world in which he lives, a world in which two thirds of the population live in poverty.
Just as important is that he recognizes the role he can play in making a difference to those less privileged; that he learns the value of giving both his time and his money to help others. He might find himself preparing and serving meals for the homeless, helping with a gardening project for elderly ex-servicemen or helping younger children with learning difficulties at a local school.
We run a variety of fundraising events each year ranging from the Charity Ball to sponsored walks. The weekly offering from the Sunday service is also donated to charity.
