Bugle Boys call for food bank donations

The harsh reality is that while lots of Edinburgh residents are out celebrating the start of the festive season, for many, it’s a hugely stressful time.

This year, Civil Disobedience and Assembly Roxy are offering £5 tickets to hilarious new show Bugle Boys: Christmas Crackers, running at the Roxy throughout December, for anyone who shows up to one of the first three performance with a donation for one of Edinburgh’s food banks.

We’ll be working with The Trussell Trust  to make sure effective distribution to families in crisis…all you need to do is rock up with your donation.

How does it work?

Simple. Click through and buy a £5 ticket for the any of our first 3 shows on 11th and 12th December 2018. Show up with your ticket and a donation to be taken to the Trussell Trust. Come in and enjoy the show.

What should I donate?

A typical food parcel includes the following goods:

  • Cereal
  • Soup
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Tinned tomatoes/ pasta sauce
  • Lentils, beans and pulses
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tea/coffee
  • Tinned fruit
  • Biscuits
  • UHT milk
  • Fruit juice

Alongside the standard food parcel, food banks try to provide the following essential non-food items to adults and children in crisis:

  • Toiletries – deodorant, toilet paper, shower gel, shaving gel, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand wipes
  • Household items – laundry liquid detergent, laundry powder, washing up liquid
  • Feminine products – sanitary towels and tampons
  • Baby supplies – nappies, baby wipes and baby food

I can’t make the show

Hate live theatre? Do drag queens prompt you to question your sexuality in a way that makes you feel icky? Perhaps ‘Last Christmas’ reminds you of a partner to whom you gave you heart only to have them throw it away just 24 hours later?  

You can still donate to the Trussell Trust. Just text FBUK14 and the amount (EG, FBUK14 £3) to 70070.

This won’t get you a ticket for Bugle Boys, but it will make you feel warm and fuzzy.
