*** Community Support Request ***
Hi everyone, I just received the below plea for help for our New Scots. Have to say I love that term. It shows that we Scots are welcoming and forward thinking. We recognise people for who they are. With that in mind and the time of year the plea received is worthy to be shared and I hope that someone reading this may be able to help in any way no matter how small. Thank You.

Plea by Dundee Rugby Club.

Help us support our local community!
In the spirit of camaraderie and community support, we would like to bring your attention to a vital cause that requires our collective effort – aiding New Scots as they face the challenges of winter in Dundee.

Lali, from Dundee Volunteer and Voluntary Action, recently reached out to us, expressing the ongoing need for winter essentials for individuals who have recently arrived in our city. The influx of New Scots continues, and we have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on their lives during the colder months.

How Can We Help?

The current necessities for New Scots include young men’s winter clothes and shoes, particularly in sizes Medium-Large for clothing and 42-43 (8-9 UK) for shoes. Additionally, dignity packs comprising new underwear, socks, toothbrushes/paste, shower gel, deodorant, and a bag, such as a rucksack, are greatly appreciated.
