Take part in the Scottish Christmas Charity Festival and fundraise for Open Arms Malawi!

On Saturday 7thand Sunday 8th December 2019, the Great Scottish Christmas Charity Festival will celebrate its 12th year in Inverleith Park, Edinburgh

With over 30 charity stalls to browse around (and tea, coffee and snacks to keep you warm), Open Arms Malawi would like to invite you to take part in one of the weekend activities!

With 6 active events for you to choose from, including a 5k & 10k run, 10k walk, tattie run, or the Santa Parade, Open Arms Malawi will be supporting the festive season as an affiliated charity of the event.

All you need to do is raise or donate the minimum amount of £45 per person to Open Arms Malawi, you get free entry to all of the events!  We get 100% of your donation too so you can be sure that your support will go straight to benefit children in Malawi.

If the thought of putting down your eggnog in favour of running shoes makes your Christmas spirit shrink as quickly as the Grinch’s heart, then have no fear – you can still support Open Arms Malawi by raising funds and exploring the Christmas Festival Fayre where we’ll be chatting to other charities and spreading the word about our work. 

We’re always on the look out for more help so if you’d like to support our stall by chatting to residents of Edinburgh about all that we do, please feel do get in touch.
