Next meeting : 7pm, Sat Jul 16th, Hill Station
Our refugee action meeting on Jun 25 made amazing progress. 16 of us, including lots of new faces, gathered to discuss the project so far (Phase 1), outcomes of impact report and next steps. We also heard from Pamela who has spent time volunteering in Calais, and Boz who is working on a radio soap opera with Syrian refugees.
We focused primarily on the need to raise £14k for Phase 2.
Although there was some support for the original concept of the high profile evening event, it was generally felt that it was both too ambitious in the time frame and not necessary given the required budget.

And now Sainsbury’s are offering us 4% if you sign up for their new ‘Everyday’ card. Mine just came. If you ever use Sainsburys, get your card here and help support the local community projects like New Cross Learning, Common Growth and Grow Wild without any extra cost to you.

We will also have a brilliant prize draw on the night… as well as a bar, puddings, music and dance performances plus a chance to hear more about the project.
Prizes for the draw include 2 tickets to see The Audience starring Kirsten Scott Thomas as the Queen and our very own Sylvestra Le Touzel as Mrs T. To make this even more exciting you will get a back stage tour and a glass of champagne with some members of the cast.
Every time I go to Sainsbury’s in New Cross I bump into several people I know. Imagine if 4% of all the money we collectively spend could be given back to the community? That beats a few nectar points into a cocked hat. To get your card sign up here
