This year we are a part of the Art Trail http://www.e17arttrail.co.uk/
Eat or Heat will have an Art Market on Saturday June 14th from 12pm – 6pm at the St Mary’s Welcome Centre, E17 9RJ
We are running our famous £5 Art Raffle where you can buy raffle tickets for some amazing pieces of art donated to the charity.
Loads of stalls including Prosecco & Sorrel by Woodford and Warner, Pimms by the Stow Roses, vintage fashion & home-ware, local food market, DJ Jerome’s Music Garden, kids art activities and much more.
Entry is £1 for adults and children are free with a can of food.
Come along, see all the excellent items on offer, take a break from the Art Trail and have something to eat and drink.
Even though the weather is getting warmer and the days longer, which eases the heating and lighting bills, the referrals to the Food Bank are rising. Without including clients who are collecting their second and third week of food bags the referrals in January were above 40. In February this rose to above 60 and in March more than 90.
Sadly the donations of food are decreasing and our shelves empty quickly. Of course we have run events which have been generously supported by you and we plan to do more. These bring in much needed funds to enable us to buy food.
These funds will not last forever, so I am asking all you wonderful people who support us to dig deep and either donate food or money to Eat or Heat.
