I am a Harringay local and volunteer as a project leader at the Finsbury Park FoodCycle hub. Foodcycle is a charity that unites and nourishes communities using surplus food. Through our 36 projects across the UK we strengthen communities by bringing people together around a healthy (vegetarian) meal; encourage friendships by creating spaces for people from all backgrounds and walks of life to have fun together; improve nutrition and reduce hunger by cooking healthy meals for those in need; and change attitudes to food by cooking with surplus ingredients and spreading our passion for food and the environmentwww.foodcycle.org.uk
On the 30h March the Finsbury Park project is organising a fundraiser at the Finsbury Park community centre (where we hold our weekly sessions). The chef Asma Khan (the first British chef on the show Chef's Table) will be leading us in cooking a meal for paying guests. The evening will include a raffle and we are looking for raffle prizes which we can use to raise funds for the charity. Here are the details (tickets still available too!):
I am wondering if any local businesses or restaurants might be able to help by donating a prize? The kind of thing we would be looking for would be: 2 main meals and a bottle of wine at a local restuarnyt; a voucher for a massage/beauty treatment; a pair of tickets to an event or workshop; a yoga workshop or course of classes; a personal training sessions ; a £50 voucher for a local florist/wine shop/pub etc.
I would be hugely grateful for any donation. All donations will be properly thanked and acknowledged on the evening. The attendees are likely to include some locals to Finsbury Park, so it could be a good way to get some positive publicity at a great community event. The supper club ran last year with a lot of success, a lovely atmosphere a and amazing food and we expect it to be even better this year.
If you are interested I can send over a headed letter, with details of the evening. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to get back to me.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
I am happy to offer a free career coaching session.
I’ve sent you a connection request so we can discuss details.
