A group of female comedians has set up a fund to ensure women and members of vulnerable groups can get home safely during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The Home Safe Collective was set up as a result of the murder of comic Eurydice Dixon, who was returning home from a gig in Melbourne, Australia, when she was killed.
Comedian Angela Barnes is leading Home Safe, which has set up an account with taxi firm City Cabs in Edinburgh, whose drivers are police checked.
Online donations to the account will cover taxi fares to get people home safely. So far £5,425 has been donated.
An online statement from Home Safe said: “The Edinburgh Fringe is coming up and we want to ensure that women (cis and trans), people identifying as non-binary and trans men and members of vulnerable/at-risk groups, are able to get home safely.
“The fringe is an expensive time of year, and spending money on a cab home can be impossible for some. So we have set up an account with CityCabs in Edinburgh whose drivers are police checked.”
