Sharing Lunch 26 Dec

Whether you just fancy a change of scene or you’d like a bit of company over the holiday period, you are extremely welcome to join us for our Boxing Day sharing lunch.

We’ve been doing this for a few years now at the Hill Station on Kitto Rd. It’s a casual affair, pop in for a free cup of tea sharing foodand a quick chat or bring along some of your festive leftovers and share with others. I’ve particularly enjoyed it when people have brought food they would have eaten at Christmas in their home country, but mince pies are welcome too!

We’ll be around and open from 12 till 4. Hope to see you there.


Bold Backers Feedback

sculpture 11Last month we invited all our Bold Backers to join us for a celebratory supper and a chance to hear all their feedback about what we have been doing so far at Bold Vision plus their ideas for where we should focus our attention next.

Among the many ideas (summarised here Bold Backers 2014 Report on your feedback) we realise a few things need clarifying to everybody

  • Bold Vision is an umbrella charity supporting the Hill Station, New Cross Learning, Common Growth and other local community projects like Grow Wild from time to time
  • Almost all community activities are run on a voluntary basis, the projects and Bold Vision are constantly seeking funding to maintain activities
  • We welcome new members onto the Bold Vision management team – contact  boldvisionmail@gmail.com to find out more or get involved
  • If you have a fundraising idea or know someone who might be interested in being a Bold Backer please also get in touch

Christmas trees for good

I have just finished our monthly Lewisham rough sleepers meeting where we discuss each of the known rough sleepers and try to co-ordinate their options to get housed.  The list of names is long, very long.  The annual count of rough sleepers is at the end of the month and it will be interesting to see how it compares to last year’s total of sixteen.


Almost 100 trees already sold

Here at King’s Christmas Trees we have been very busy. As soon as the website went live at the end of October we started takings orders and dealing with enquires.  Thank you for your support – we have almost sold over 100 trees!


If you have already ordered your tree you will continue to get these weekly emails for a few more weeks. We hope you don’t mind but if you really don’t want to get them you can unsubscribe. But we really don’t want you to do that – we have lots more exciting information about King’s Christmas Trees and The Jericho Road Project.

What makes the King’s Christmas Trees different?

All the profits go directly to helping homeless people. For thirteen years The Feast has provided a safe place for the weakest and most vulnerable to meet.  Their aim is not to keep people stuck in their poverty.  They encourage everyone who attends to become part of the solution – this may involve taking responsibility for an aspect of the evening.  Examples are preparing the room, serving the meals and helping clear up at the end of the evening. All very Bold Vision – y

They also welcome people who are living in vulnerable situations working to prevent people getting evicted by helping people address debt issues, talking with housing associations and helping people take responsibility for their situation.
