World Leprosy Day Event – Edinburgh

On the same day a fundraising meal was held at the Piatto Verde restaurant in Edinburgh and over £500 was raised. The money was used to buy new mattresses for all the patients.

On 7th September 2013 a fundraising event, Magnolias for Malawi, was held in Glasgow. There was an exhibition of flower arranging, some Indian drumming music and a magic show to end with.

Again, over £500 was raised which went to pay for a 2nd hand motorcycle to enable medical staff to visit surrounding villages where they can treat minor ailments and explain the facts about leprosy in an attempt to de-stigmatise the condition.
