Free Coffee for Life: Join the Forest Burrito Squad!
Folks, we’re nearly halfway to out £100,000 target. We’re within sight of buying back 3 Bristo Place and reopening the Forest there. (If you’ve just landed on this site and what to know more about the campaign, read on here.) The support we’ve had so far from all quarters, from artists to MSPs, has been overwhelming. But we still need your help to run that last stretch to the target.
Press Release: MSPs SHOW THEIR SUPPORT FOR FOREST CAFÉ
Politicians from across the political spectrum have pledged support
for Edinburgh’s free arts and events space. Following last week’s
support from the Culture Secretary Fiona Hyslop (1), MSPs are now adding
their verbal support for The Forest’s volunteer-run campaign to buy
the premises at 3 Bristo Place. The Culture Secretary praised The
Forest’s August programme and vowed during last week’s Question Time
to help arrange a meeting with her civil servants to help with the
fundraising efforts. Since then, Alison Johnstone, the Lothian
Region’s Green MSP, has lodged a Parliamentary Motion (2) calling on
Holyrood to support the fundraising efforts.
