Christmas Tree Appeal
As part of the Community Christmas Tree Festival held by Bethnal Green Mission Church, SimpleGifts will be decorating a Christmas tree. We are looking for donations to help procure the materials for our tree - including the tree itself! - as well as general donations to help fund our programming. The first 20 people to donate during this appeal will receive a lovely handmade decoration created by the children at our After School Club.
To pay online, please use the PayPal link (you can simply pay with a credit card, you do not need a PayPal account) and make a note that it is for the Christmas Tree Appeal. Otherwiser, you may send a cheque to: SimpleGifts, 117 Mansford Street, Bethnal Green, London, E2 6LX
We need volunteers!
Given the success of our programmes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we are especially looking for volunteers in the following capacities:
Financial assistant - Someone to help our Treasurer keep track of our income and expenses. This role would only require an hour or so a week, plus an extra hour at the end of the month for reporting, most of which can be done remotely and at your leisure. Knowledge of Excel and of basic business accounting would be very useful in this role.
Cook/Kitchen helper - anyone with basic kitchen skills who has time to help us out on Thursdays with our new Lunch Club. Kitchen prep starts at 10:00 and clean-up is finished by 2:00. Even one-off volunteers would be welcome!
English Language Group - We are sad to lose Louise Baumberg, our quailfied ESOL (English as a Second or Other Language) teaching volunteer, who is leaving us due to paid work commitments, but we thank her very much for helping us get this group off to a healthy start. If you have experience and/or an educational background in teaching English, or facilitating an ESOL conversation group, we would love to have you! At this point, our Tuesday group is women-only and would require a female teacher/group leader.
Our Mansford Street location is a short walk from the Bethnal Green tube stop (Central Line) and is also accessible from the Overground and several bus lines.
For more information, or to register your interest, please contact us at: email@example.com
We do our best to keep our operating costs down, but certain things like food supplies and utilities are necessities that we must fund.
If you would like to help us keep our community projects running, even the smallest amount would help us with our goals!
