Each year we need to raise at least £20,000 to cover the basic costs of brochure design, printing, proofing and distribution as well as the sourcing, selecting and supporting of the participating buildings and volunteers.
Staff and friends of the Association help in their own free time to keep costs to a minimum.
In 2016 we were grateful for the sponsorship support of City & Country, City of Edinburgh Council and Mactaggart & Mickel
