The Foundation has provided vital funding so Social Bite can make a success of its “Festival of Kindness” campaign.
This year Social Bite has installed two “Trees of Kindness” in Edinburgh and Glasgow – one in the Capital’s St Andrews Square and the other at Vinicombe Street/Byres Road, Hillhead in Glasgow’s west end
Social Bite are asking people to donate a gift to someone who is homeless and vulnerable and place it under the tree at selected times of the week UNTIL DECEMBER 23.
Social Bite will then distribute tens of thousands of gifts throughout Scotland to homeless people, families, and children in poverty.
Gift donation times at both locations are Monday to Wednesday 12pm – 2pm
and Thursday to Sunday 10:30am – 7:30pm.
Suggested gifts can be found on the Social Bite website at
John Watson OBE who founded The Watson Foundation said: “We are delighted to be playing our part in this most difficult of years when the work of Social Bite is proving more vital than ever. The Tree of Kindness is an inspirational idea to encourage people to ensure goodwill is extended to the homeless and others in need.
“We remain deeply committed to supporting Social Bite as we have done for many years in its essential mission to defeat homelessness in Scotland once and for all.”
Josh Littlejohn MBE, Co-Founder of Social Bite added: “We are immensely grateful to John Watson and the Watson Foundation for such incredible support for our Tree of Kindness campaign. Social Bite and The Watson Foundation have a long association of working together and the funding we have received in recent years has undoubtedly helped us deliver on our important work.”
