Funds raised at the Yuletide Fair will be shared with The Circle and the organisations who are partnering to run the event. The tenant partners are Uppertunity, Togs, and Dundee Independent Advocacy Support (DIAS). These organisations support a wide range of the community including people with learning disabilities, families and people with mental illnesses.

Jenny McCarthy, Trainee Associate Consultant at The Circle, says the organisation is excited to team up with its partners to run this inclusive event,

“We are delighted to have the involvement of some of our tenants so that they can also receive the money raised through the event. We’re also working with Epilepsy Scotland, where our former fundraising intern Alice Wilson is now based – she was instrumental in organising the fair last year and was keen to get involved again this year."

Alice Wilson, Community and Event Fundraiser for Epilepsy Scotland, says

“I helped organise The Circle’s Yuletide Fair last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, so when I heard that they were planning to run it again I was keen to get involved through my new role at Epilepsy Scotland. This will be a great opportunity to raise more awareness of epilepsy and the support we can offer at Epilepsy Scotland.”
