Early on a Saturday morning, a group of students heads to Princes Street for a day of collecting money for charity, in this case Oxfam.
It certainly brightens up gloomy winter streets to come across a tiger or a fairy with lopsided wings. Now that we're into March, it's the time of the Marie Curie daffodil appeal. I came across a collector dressed as a daffodil outside the supermarket today, and annoyingly I didn't have my camera. Hopefully I'll find another collecting daffodil before the month is out. An aunt who died recently was cared for lovingly in her own home by Marie Curie nurses. This amazing service of end of life care is provided free, so every donation counts.
