The Dome helps Children 1st raise a smile for Scotland’s vulnerable children

Visitors to The Dome showed their generosity last month by donating £3,580 to Children 1st.

Throughout July, patrons of the iconic Edinburgh restaurant were asked to donate via a discretionary 50p on each bill. They responded with huge generosity, raising the impressive amount in aid of some of Scotland’s most vulnerable children and families.

Matthew Hall, Corporate Fundraiser for Children 1st, accepted the cheque from The Dome, saying:

"Some children have little to smile about, but Children 1st and The Dome are determined to give them reasons to. This initiative by The Dome is a marvellous way to turn small amounts of loose change into a really substantial amount. Last year Children 1st supported over 11,800 children, young people, parents and carers via our local services. We can’t thank the The Dome and their guests enough for thinking of us with such big hearts and helping us to reach more vulnerable children in Scotland."

General Manager of The Dome, Steve Hall, said:

"I am delighted with the positive response from our guests to our charity initiative. All these 50ps mount up and have made a meaningful difference to many lives. Over the past 15 months, 15 charities have benefitted to the tune of £50,000 thanks to the generosity of our guests. I know they will be delighted to hear that our July collection has gone to Children 1st, a fantastic charity delivering vital support to vulnerable children in Scotland.”
