Fresh Start

Fresh Start charity logoFresh Start is a Christian charity in Edinburgh which seeks to provide practical help to those resettling from homelessness into a new home in the community.


Currie Kirk members are involved in many different ways, the simplest of which is the collection of new and used household goods for ‘Starter Packs’ to go to each new home. So, if you’re Spring cleaning, looking for a home for an unwanted gift or even moving house, don’t dump it – donate it!


Christine and Martin Wilson are the couple in Currie Kirk who look after all our donations and take them to Fresh Start at Ferry Road for distribution. If you have more than three bags to donate, please consider taking them directly to Ferry Road.

What we collect:

Crockery (Mugs and plates, no cups and saucers)• Cutlery • Pots • Pans • Cooking Utensils • Kettles • Toasters • Basins • Buckets • Dust Pans & Brushes • Blankets • Bed Linen • Curtains • Towels • Mirrors • Clocks • Lamps


In fact, we can use anything that helps make a house a home! We need items that are in good working order and re-useable. Very often it is the simple things like toilet rolls, washing-up liquid, polish and other cleaning items that we can’t get hold of. So, the next time you are doing your shopping, why not go for that ‘buy one - get one free’ offer and donate the spare item to someone who really needs it!  Each month we try and concentrate on particular items. 


For further information please contact Christine Wilson on 0131-538-2567 or visit the Fresh Start website (this link will open in a new window).
