Beer + cupcakes = good

As you’ll probably be aware from the amount we’ve been banging on about it on Twitter, this year, our annual fundraiser is going to be awesome on Sunday 13th April. SUNDAY 13TH APRIL – Diarise that date, people! (And yes, we know, it clashes with the London Marathon, but eating cake is waaay better than … Continue reading

Waitrose Highbury Corner is our new hangout

Waitrose Highbury Corner is our new hangout

Pinch, punch, first, err, third of the month. Whatever, it’s March. And that can only mean one thing – we are one of Highbury Corner Waitrose’s Community Matters organisations of the month, don’t you know?!

There is no I in TEAM

So, we’ve undertaken a bit of an undertaking and signed ourselves up to run Hackney … not the whole of it, *just* a half marathon‘s worth of it, with a whole load of other people on Sunday 22nd June.

Not now at least. We did want to highlight one local initiative though. Why? Well because it needs a … Continue reading

We heart Bishop Stopford’s School

How’s this for spreading the love…?  A little while ago we were contacted by a teacher at Bishop Stopford’s School in Enfield.  The Year 10 BTEC Business class there had heard about FCFK Hackney and wanted us to be their summer 2013 charity.

Our wish has been granted

As FCFK Hackney goes from strength to strength, our ability to have a wider impact on our local area is being recognised – recently most notably by Hackney Council who have awarded us a grant for a whopping £1,000.
