Their say

PERFORMERS, visitors and organisers are counting down the days to the Edinburgh Festival frenzy and Linlithgow-based charity Eczema Outreach Scotland is preparing for its free workshop with the Festival of Spirituality and Peace (FoSP) on August 4, giving people an opportunity to learn more about the charity and enjoy arts and crafts activities.

Magali Speight, Eczema Outreach Scotland (EOS) manager, said: “With this event we hope to reach out to different communities that need support and advice on dealing with their children’s eczema.”

EOS was set up in 2011, to offer practical and emotional advice using family outings, regular information and one to one support. It is the only group that helps children with eczema and their families in Scotland, and is now developing its services to address pre-adolescents and teenagers affected.

The workshop will be at St. John’s Church, Princes Street, from 11am to 12pm on August 4.
