Charity donations

The Lothian team are all vounteers and help to run the Young Enterprise Company Programme with monetary donations from all locations. Lothian Young Enterprise is a charity.

We changed the format and have received various excellent comments about the training, which was held for the second time on a Saturday and at the RBS Gogarburn, this is very expensive and depletes our funds, hence we are asking if any of this year’s teams would make a charitable donation to the Lothian Young Enterprise programme.

No matter how small the amount all monies received will go towards next year’s (2018-2019) Company Programme.  

The Lothian Young Enterprise bank account details are below –

Account number : 10822623

Please give your company name in the notes field so that the Lothian team can acknowledge receipt of your donation. Many thanks in advance.
