A Fun filled May!

We are all excited for our upcoming Soup at One Church on the 26th May and being part of the Any Other Business week of events, bringing together social and charitable organisations across our city. There’s plenty of fun community events – most of them free – so we thought we’d mention a couple.

Florence Road Farmer’s Market

The AOB week kicks off at 10 am on Saturday 20th May with the Florence Road Farmer’s Market, hosted by our friends at One Church. With a variety of delicious local foods to get stuck into: from fresh, ethical fish to sourdough breads, farm-direct meat and olive oil – as well as street food and speciality coffee.

The market helps build strong local relationships with weekly shoppers that keep the market going, and vulnerable people served by One Church Brighton who work within the market. This sounds right up our street, combining yummy food with community togetherness! A great way to start the AOB week.

Funding and Fundraising

If you’re interested in fund-raising advice, then Funding and Fundraising – hosted by Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival – could be perfect for you.

Can you think of one great piece of fundraising advice you’ve been given? Something that has really helped your cause. Or would you like to hear tips from others fundraisers? Well Chris Llewellyn of the CriSeren Foundation and Stephen Chamberlain from the Sussex Community Foundation will be there talking about working with supporters, raising money for the local community and working in partnership.

This sounds like a great event to gain knowledge and share experience in fundraising! Its at the The Basement, Kensington Street from 5pm – 6:30 pm. So come along, get some advice, give some advice and get connected.

For details and tickets to these and other AOB events visit AOB EventBrite. And you can get tickets for ours here.

We hope to see you at some of these wonderful events in May,  and at our next Soup!
