A regional round up
We're really proud of the volunteer teams that help to organise our TFN regional events around the country each year. Today we're sharing updates from some of them:
TFN Bristol is back for another live crowdfunding event on 12th October with Quartet Community Foundation, and we're pleased to announce the 5 projects that will be pitching. It's a good offering: from low-cost energy to pop-up pizza, there's something for everybody.
Babbasa helps young people from less advantages communities by providing confidential support, professional mentoring and training and career oriented events.
The C.H.E.E.S.E Project have successfully developed a unique thermal-imaging technique to provide fuel-poor families with low-cost energy.
Refugee Welcome Homes reduces homelessness among new, single refugees in Bristol by providing affordable accommodation.
Somali Kitchen raises awareness of the negative impact of fast food by encouraging families to cook food and develop healthy lifestyles.
Tales by the Oven supports homeless people in hostels by delivering training that culminates in pop-up pizza restaurants that bring people together.
Tickets for TFN Bristol are on sale now and can be booked online.
If you joined us at TFN Oxford in May this year, you will remember a beautiful exhibition of photographs showcasing the projects TFN Oxford has supported over the last ten years. Howard Stanbury is currently exhibiting the photographs at the John Radcliffe Hospital Link Gallery in Oxford until 30th November. Howard said:
"I am pleased there is an opportunity to show the photos to a wider audience. I am grateful for the support and encouragement of Sue Raikes of TFN Oxford and of the TFN team in London. It was great to see the enthusiastic participation of staff, volunteers and the beneficiaries of the ten projects I photographed as part of this project."
