Get Involved

When attending any of the concerts or activities as part of the Perthshire Amber Festival please bring an item of non perishable food (tins, packets, boxes and jars) to add to the collection. You can contribute as much or as little as you like!! Whether you raid your kitchen cupboard for a tin of beans or packet of pasta, or hit the local food shop for a basket full of goodies, all the food is greatly appreciated. Remember too... sometimes a simple special treat like a packet of biscuits or a bar of chocolate can really make a difference to someone's day.

Where possible there will be cane baskets on display around the different venues for collecting the food. If in doubt you can just give your contribution to one of the Perthshire Amber Festival Team and they will make sure it gets to the right place.

All these items will then be redistributed to homeless shelters or made into "emergency packs" (a vital resource for so many people at the very edge of food poverty).

Lets see if we can beat last years total and help even more of the people who need it most. Every small effort helps!
