Summer’s here and we’ve been out and about in Islington with a bit of Community Card Making.
Firstly we celebrating Islington Giving Week with a ‘Time to Give’ event at the Kindness Offensive free book shop. Check out a video of the event here. We really enjoyed collaborating with other Islington projects to demo live micro volunteering. People came along and made cards for random acts of kindness, as well as had a go at some lace making with Age UK Islington, smoothie making with Foodcycle and the tweet and bounce challenge with the Saturday Night Out.
On the 12th of July Here To popped up at the Manor Gardens Summer Fair. The sun was shining and loads of people got involved in creating birthday cards for the members of the Friendship Network. It was lovely to see some many families getting involved in bite-size volunteering!
The Here To on tour event would not be the same without a bit of magic from our wizards. A big thanks goes to Joanna Massie for spending a couple of hours getting creative at the fair with the community cardmaking. We’ve got lots more events planned so check out how you can become a wizard here.
Next we’ll be at the Whitecross Street Party on Saturday 19th of July and several more events are in the pipeline over the summer.
We are constantly updating our website so keep an eye out, or let us know of what you’d like to see more of!
