Supporting The Engine Shed

The end of the old Innocent Railway Line was the engine shed.

Tucked away off St Leonard's Lane The Engine Shed is now the home of a social enterprise which provides and trains people with learning difficulties for employment. 

Here is an extract from the recent newsletter advertising a benefit concert in St Peter's, Lutton Place on Sunday 11th May at 7pm.  Admission is free but there is a collection for Waverley Care and the Engine Shed.  Well known local, amateur choir and a Californian Vocal Art Ensemble will be providing the music.
"We have received many donations over the years, and this year is no exception.  We have recently received a cheque for £1700 , donated by Fettes College from their fundraising Christmas 'teen ball'.  Also good news from a local Southside based Church, St Peter's, which has nominated us as one of the charities that will benefit us from their fundraising activities in 2014.
Fulltime job for Caitlin:  Fantastic news for another of our hardworking trainees, Caitlin, who has successfully gained a paid, fulltime job at Selex ES UK.  Caitlin started her training with the Engine Shed in July 2011.  Throughout her training she has been a dedicated and popular team member.  She really enjoys cooking, making the best macoroni cheese in town!  Caitlin moves on to her new job having successfully completed hertraining and will leave with a REHIS Food Elementary Certificate, an industry requirement for her new fulltime post as catering assistant.  Well done and we wish you luck."
