Yellow ribbon christmas tree for those who won't see their children

A christmas tree has been placed at the Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh's Royal Mile as a small symbol for parents who are prevented from seeing their children at Christmas.

Tim Porteus, himself a well-known storyteller., has organised this as a way of recognising those for whom Christmas is a difficult and emotional time due to family separation.  Fathers can tie a yellow ribbon to the tree with a message to their children. to show that they are missed but not forgotten.

Although the FNF Scotland office is closed until January 4th, anyone wanting to talk to the organisation can ring the 0131 557 2440 number to find out which member of staff is available by mobile phone during the holiday period. 

We wish all separated parents well for 2017.
