This time last year, Here To Islington launched at Platform with a spectacular tea dance.
Since then, hundreds of local people and projects have come together via the Here To website to kick-start a movement of helping out across the borough. For example:
- * 14 local people have got to watch free theatre as ushers
- * 24 have made new connections through befriending
- * 31 residents have learnt new recipes helping on cooking projects
We want to mark our 1st year of activity by throwing a big birthday bash to thank you for your contribution, to meet new friends and to share with you some improvements we’ve made to the website.
In true Here To style, opportunities to help out locally on live projects will be at the heart of the event.
So whether you’ve got 10 minutes or an hour to spare, you can leave with new skills, community connections to local projects and a tummy full of cake and ice-cream!
A sneak preview of some of our activities…
- * Get creative by making nature-spotting tools with The Garden Classroom
- * Learn how to make bunting by getting crafty with The Handmade Alliance
- * Make homemade ice-cream by inventing a new flavour for Udderlicious
- * Have your ideas immortalised in art by having a chat with artist Ji
- * Get top-tips on leading workshops by designing an after-school session
What else is happening…
