Dunedin Canmore Sponsor Edinburgh’s First Social Enterprise Festival
Chief Executive, Ewan Fraser, Dunedin Canmore said “We signed up to supporting Social in the Square from the start and really see the social benefit of local business in local communities and with profits returning back into communities. As a Social Enterprise ourselves, it is encouraging to see the rich variety of businesses represented at this event.”
Keeping in tune with the ethos of the festival – the security, marketing materials, recycling and water for the volunteers was all being provided by social enterprises.
Guests to the festival took part in a variety of activities including massages at the Health and Wellbeing tent, arts and crafts, musical performances, chef demonstrations and the chance to buy local produce from a wide range of Social Enterprise businesses.
The event was a real success attracting families and member of the public passing through St Andrew’s Square.
