Help Mary Contini raise money for Theirworld
V&C, a 4th generation Italian family business started in Edinburgh from humble beginnings. Our forebears forced to leave poverty in Southern Italy in the early 1900’s. Our roots resonate today with immigrants and displaced people across the globe. Having been the first generation to benefit from a full time education, we fully support Theirworld in their mission to build alliances and create political pressure to give the young emigrants and refugees of today the life changing opportunity and security of an education.

Mary and Olivia will be walking the Edinburgh half-marathon on Sunday 29th May to raise money for Theirworld. We invite you to help support us with a donation, no matter the size, on this the 20th anniversary of the charity. Thank you!

Theirworld - How you can help the children of Ukraine
The growing humanitarian crisis unfolding before our eyes is horrendous. Especially for children - the most innocent victims in any conflict. They need safety and shelter. But they also desperately need education, with the security and sense of normality that it brings. A safe space to learn and to be with friends.
Education will be crucial for Ukraine’s 7.5 million children - for those still there and those who have fled with their families to other areas or neighbouring countries. To find out more about how Theirworld and what you can do to support, visit
