As always, we like to mention that the other projects are still looking for help and support. If you can help, then please get in touch with them directly (details below) or use our contact form.


1 – Sew & Grow in the Community

Sew and Grow in the Community would create a safe space for women to build confidence, strengthen community bonds and open up conversations around the impact of domestic abuse whilst learning valuable sewing skills. 43772994_2060560064006133_2472751163527659520_o

The first course is for women from the BME community who have expressed a desire to learn sewing skills as a way to save and make money.

2 – All Saints – Caritas (Winner)

Logo - Caritas (All Saints)

Since 2013, Caritas has provided a monthly Sunday lunch for homeless and vulnerably housed people, and those who feel excluded or on the periphery of society. It is held at All Saints Church Hall. Much of the food cooked is donated by Fairshare- an organisation which redistributes supermarket food that is about to go out of date.

3 –  Market Beans – Coffee With A Social Purpose

Logo - Market Beans

Market Beans is a brand new social enterprise providing young people with a learning disability and/or autism with work skills and barista training to increase their employability. We will have fun with our trainees selling a range of high quality coffee at community events, festivals and in public spaces from a ‘coffee bike’, which we will cycle to the location, supplementing battery power with solar panels to minimise the environmental impact of the project.

Pitching: Katherine Wynne & Roger Lightbown

Logo - Twice Dead

“The residents of a home for a group of physically and mentally disabled people have been purposely abandoned to their fate during a world wide Zombie pandemic. But these disposable survivors aren’t as helpless as you might think.”
Twice Dead #1 – Darwin’s End.

The creation and distribution of Book 1 of a 16 part comic series, that can be read by all (reading and non-reading abilities). The pictures as much as the dialogue will tell the story.
