Two of Port of Leith Housing Association’s (PoLHA) sheltered housing complexes have raised over £2,000 at their summer fayres.

St Nicholas Court, on Ferry Road, and Hermitage Court had an array of stalls, including a raffle, tombola, home baking, bric-a-brac and books.

The funds raised will go towards supporting activities for all tenants to enjoy, such as day trips, theatre trips, exercise classes and lunch clubs.

Maureen Tait, PoLHA’s sheltered housing services manager, said: “Our summer fayres are fast approaching their 20th anniversary and have always attracted a good turnout. We’re very fortunate to have the support from the local community, and our tenants and their family and friends as they know how important the activities are in getting our tenants out and about.”
