Dobbies Edinburgh is delighted to announce its new local charity partner will be the Meningitis Research Foundation.

All local charity partners at Dobbies will have the opportunity to create a bespoke fundraising plan.

Jayne Kirkpatrick, Community Champion for Dobbies Edinburgh, said: “As a store, we’re really excited to begin working with Meningitis Research Foundation and to see what new and inspiring ideas they have.

“Our customers have always been incredibly generous, and I know this is a cause they will be keen to rally behind.”

In the past few years, charities have held events in the store, such as fun days with cupcake decorating and fancy dress competitions.

For the first time, Dobbies’ local charity partners will also benefit from the 5p carrier bag charge. Last year, Dobbies Edinburgh teamed up with Jamie Skinner Foundation to raise more than £1500.
