#JoinUsInJune and help reach our £3.1m target!

It’s all hands on deck at Harmeny to help us finish the Learning Hub build. Can you help us raise £100K in June to support our appeal and ensure that young people get the spaces, support and opportunities they need to thrive?

The construction of Harmeny’s new secondary learning facilities is now well underway, with the build of the new Learning Hub due to complete in August. An incredible £2.89m has been raised against our £3.1m target so far, leaving £255k to raise by the end of July.

There are many ways that you can get involved in our #JoinUsInJune campaign – whether it is organising your own sponsored challenge or holding an event with friends and family. Walk, Run, Cycle, Swim – do a Pogo Stick challenge – anything goes! Open garden day, BBQ, coffee morning or picnic – the choice is yours.

Busy in June? No problem – you can also pledge to complete a fundraising activity by the end of September. Why not sign up to the Edinburgh Kiltwalk on 17 September? We have FREE places available, find out more here.

Ways to get involved

Join Neil and Orla on their marathon walk

Our CEO, Neil Squires, is walking 26 miles along the Water of Leith (with his dog Orla!) on Saturday 24 June. Neil will be joined by friends and colleagues and we’d love you to join us too! If you would like to come along for the full distance, or for part of the walk, please get in touch for further details.

Support our Water of Leith walkers here.

Gift a brick, build a future

Could you, or your business, donate or raise £1,000 to gift a brick to the Learning Hub? Each brick will enable more young people to discover their potential and extend our support up to age 18.

Edinburgh based artist, Claudia Petretti, held an art exhibition in June and raised over £4,000 – thank you to everyone who attended!

RBC Brewin Dolphin, our charity partner, took on the Tough Mudder at Drumlanrig Castle on Saturday 3 June. They have raised over £3,000 towards our £100k target and have lots more activities planned to help close the gap – thank you!

Our builders Thomas Johnstone Ltd will be handing back the Learning Hub in August and then we’ll be kitting out the new spaces ready for opening in October, so every pound will help us get the building ready for learning. Watch a video of the build progress so far here.
