Exterior of The Eric Liddell Community Hub building

& Trustees

The Eric Liddell Community was founded in 1980, in honour of the sporting and inspirational Scotsman whose 400 metres gold medal win at the 1924 Paris Olympics inspired the film Chariots of Fire. When Eric Liddell lived in Edinburgh, he was very familiar with the converted church where The Eric Liddell Community is based.
