22 December 2017 - A Wee Update
We have been a bit quiet on the website fromt again but that doesn't mean we have been quiet as a charity. We have been busy sice October with our Christmas card sales which I am happy to say have gone well again this year. So I must say a big thank you to all our supporters who have bought cards from us this year, may of you repeat customers which we really appreciate.
We have had lots of fantastic fundraisers organising events and we are as ever overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness and generosity of them. Many thanks to everyone who has organised events, raised funds or donated to us in any shape or form in 2017.
We attended the babies Christmas Party in Colinton at the start of December. While it was not an "official" SSCB event event, it was organised by our Chairperson Lee Picken, and some of our committee went along to support them. Lee and her family were so organised and very much did the lions share of the work on the day, leaving us little to do other than look after our merchandise stall.
Lastly we have begun the not-so-easy task of redesigning our website ! It has looked like this for a long time, since it launced in 2003, and we aim to have a fresh design up and running in the first quarter of 2018. It is all dependant on our time as one of our new committee members is taking on the task of the rebuild, fitting it around his day-job. Watch this space !
Lastly, on behal of our committee, I would just like to say have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
6 November 2017 - A couple of Donations
We have had a couple of large donations recently from companies where their staff have chosen to support SSCB. Here are some pictures that have been shared with us.
A huge thank you to Catriona Callaghan of PwC who has quite literally gone the extra mile for SSCB having clocked up 2,000 miles by visiting all 30 UK PwC offices from Aberdeen to Plymouth even the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland. Catriona has raised over £4,000 for SSCB as part of PwC's Ride the Nation Charity Cycle Challenge.
We also had a recent donation from John Lewis depot in Leith who held a fundraiser and rased a fantastic £1,220 for us. We did try to fit in their trucks with their logo, but they were just a bit too big !
29 October 2017 - Christmas Cards Update
Our Christmas Cards are selling well this year, with our number 4 Winter Light doing particularly well so far. All designs are still available but order soon to be sure of getting the design you want.
15 October 2017 - Christmas Cards Now Available
We are happy to announce that our 2017 Christmas Cards are now available for sale. A little later than normal, we are sure that the cards will have been worth the wait. We have changed suppliers this year so the cards are a little larger than before but we have maintained the superb quality we have been used to. Please visit our Christmas Cards page to see what we have to offer this year.

The website will be getting a makeover soon and we will endeavour to get more of these fantastic fudraising events back on here, as well as the Facebook page.
