You probably know that EOTDT is working hard to set up a badly needed community space in the Canongate. The Trust is now seeking financial support to help make it happen.


For the benefit of local residents, we  want to transform this:

To something resembling this:

The Crannie, based at 5-9 Cranston Street, will offer the following

  • A Space to Meet: A hub that will build community around a social space
  • A Space to Work: An affordable place to work, particularly for new local business
  • A Space for Events: A community centre that enables things to happen
  • A Space to Learn: Creating a culture of learning, volunteering and community action

Funding for staffing The Crannie has been awarded by the Big Lottery but the Trust still needs additional funds for fixtures, fittings and furnishings to be able to open the doors next year.

We would be very grateful for your support.
