Homeless charity, Bethany Christian Trust will tomorrow (Saturday August 3) host a Vintage Fair and afternoon tea in a ‘shop to stop homelessness’ event in Edinburgh.

The Bethany shop on Haddington Place, one of the charity’s six shops around the city, will host its second vintage event on August 3, targeting the thousands of visitors in Edinburgh for the annual Fringe Festival.

Shoppers are being given the opportunity to make vintage and retro purchases in aid of homell and vulnerable people.

For £10, those taking part can enjoy an afternoon tea, vintage make-up demonstrations, a photoshote from a professional photographer and a retro fashion show.  

Kasia Jozwiak, manager of the Haddington Place branch, said: “The Fringe Festival attracts so many talented performers and visitors to the capital every year and it can be overwhelming to pick what to do or see. Our Vintage Fair event will not only provide people with a first-class vintage shopping experience but it gives peace of mind that every ticket sold not only supports Bethany’s vital work in the local community but also helps homeless men and women who will benefit long after the Festival leaves town.”

Established in 1983, Bethany Christian Trust supports over 7,000 people across Scotland. The charity’s services focus on homelessness prevention, crisis intervention and housing and support alleviating suffering and meeting the long term needs of people who are homeless in Scotland.
