Aberdeen Alternative Giving Scheme Begging Boxes


Begging Box The aim of the begging boxes is to get beggars off the streets and help those in genuine need secure a more sustainable future. The initiative is also aimed at encouraging givers to think about giving directly to recognised charities or giving through the begging box scheme.

The money raised is for local voluntary organisations that provide support for beggars.

Money collected gets divided equally between the St Vincent De Paul Society, the Bethany Christian Trust and Aberdeen City Mission, although the latter two have since amalgamated under the Bethany Christian Trust title.
