At the beginning of this month we hosted a Pancake Party in association with Home Spun Sessions to help raise funds for The Big Issue Foundation.

This post is to thank all involved and to let you all know that we raised £187.50 which is almost the average cost of an outcome for a big issue  vendor and so could help move someone on into housing, support them to get into college or employment. It’s only a small amount raised but to think that having such an enjoyable night because of time, money and talent donated by those in a position to do so could help turn a life around, makes it very special indeed.

 

I would like to thank Nic Hilman and Moira Hornik and Ram (The Floripa Chef) for there pancake cooking expertise and Sainsburys in Whitechaple (1 Cambridge Heath Rd, London E1 5SD) and The Co-op (Old Street 185 Old St, London EC1V 9NP) who both donated £10 towards the ingredients used to make the pancakes. Thank you to Whom By Fire and Severed Limb who both gave merchandise towards the raffle and played blinding sets for our entertainment for the night and Simon Landin of Home Spun Sessions who, played some amazing vinyl and made sure as ever that the sound was spot on.  Thank you also to Floripa and all the staff.

And lastly, Thank you to you all who came and supported the cause. We had tremendous fun! We’ll be doing it all again next year.
