Gillie Davidson MBE

In 2008 our Founder Gillie Davidson was awarded an MBE for services to children in the UK and India. In 2018 Gillie was shortlisted in the ‘Terrific Trustee’ category of the SCVO Scottish Charity Awards.


Volunteers are an integral part of the success of Scottish Love in Action. Volunteers help in so many ways including:

  • assisting staff to deliver large fundraising events, such as our annual Fireworks Extravaganza
  • Fundraising Ambassador – independently organising events in aid of Scottish Love in Action, and
  • utilising their professional expertise e.g. graphic design, and HR

We aim to be flexible, so you can fit volunteering around other commitments. Some volunteers help onsite e.g. in our office or at an event, while some volunteers help remotely.

We are always delighted to welcome new volunteers – please get in touch at enquiries@sla-india.org or call us on 0131 629 9112 if you or someone you know would like to volunteer with us.
