Who are Local Heroes?
There are no ordinary people. This section of the website is to celebrate the successes local people achieve in their day to day lives.
The inspiration comes from Donat (second from the right in the picture below), a volunteer at the former Scottish Council for Minorities based in Iona Street, Leith.
During the second Leith Open Space event in May 2006 people talked about obstacles to employment and voluntary work. Donat suggested it was time we all celebrated the successes of ethnic minority groups.
We look forward to telling the stories of local people and what they are achieving in many different aspects of life in the community of Leith.
