Santa is preparing for his Faculty visit to Fife



It’s a sure sign that Christmas is drawing close – the Faculty of Advocates has now started to welcome donations for its Xmas collection in aid of vulnerable families.

All this week, presents treats or cash (don’t forget Gift Aid) will be gathered and stored, ready to be driven to Fife on Saturday and distributed by the family support charity, Home-Start Glenrothes.

As in previous years, the Faculty hopes to bring festive cheer to parents as well as children, so gifts for adults will be greatly appreciated.

Maria Maguire QC, who has organised the collection, said: “Members of Faculty and staff have been very generous in embracing this cause, and we are hoping once again to make the season as happy as we can for these families.

“In the last years the initiative has also received great contributions from outwith the Faculty including the judiciary, solicitor colleagues and friends and family of members and staff. All donations are welcome and invaluable. Knowing that such widespread support is there makes a real difference to the families.”
