At the end of June we hosted a production of The Castaways at the Avenues Centre, a play by White Tree Theatre.
We can wholeheartedly recommend this amazing work and if you would like to bring the play to your area, please contact them via their website. After talking with some of the refugees who volunteer with us, White Tree Theatre is now developing a second play, which will hopefully be touring next year. We will certainly aim to bring it to Hull.
One very hot day in July was spent at the Ella Street Festival, a brilliant day out with sandpits, colour fights and cakes. We raised a total of £270, with thanks to Glitterati for donating the money they raised as well. We also stewarded the Centre for the Avenues Open Gardens and were able to talk to a few potential donors and volunteers.
Car boots at Walton Street are back on, now that Walton Street has reopened, but our next big event is the Rummage Sale on Sunday 5th August, 1-4pm. It was very successful in May, and this one will be bigger and better, with several additional stalls selling clothing, jewellery, ceramics and accessories, as well of course lots of delicious homemake cakes.
