Our Journey

Hornbeam Nights: A social adventure
Hornbeam Nights: A social adventure joined GLL Community Foundation1 week ago

By day: The Hornbeam is an environmental zero waste community centre. We're more than just a cafe, we are a space to make things happen. We bring a unique, friendly, community spirit to Baker's Arms, E17. We encourage the sharing of skills & provide the community with environmental & social change themed classes, workshops & groups. We work alongside other ethical organisations such as HEET, FRP, OrganicLea, Stories & Supper, Food for London & more. We sculpture projects which in turn create possibilities for dis-advantaged groups in our area. We pride ourselves in sourcing from & supporting local independent businesses. By night: Hornbeam Nights has been running for just over a year. We have a huge variety of events from educational film nights to pop up supper clubs. We have already run workshops on Permaculture, ethical business strategies, art therapy, herbalism and a kombucha making class. We host DJ nights, Open Decks, Live music, Jam Sessions, Open Mic, poetry and comedy.

Islington: sporty summer 4 at-risk kids
Islington: sporty summer 4 at-risk kids joined GLL Community Foundation1 month ago

What should summer holidays look like for a ten-year-old? Jam-packed with fun, healthy activities – & excitement about going to a new school. Sadly, too many kids spend the time indoors, inactive, apprehensive & alone. FC GIO aims to change this. Islington is a borough where London’s richest & poorest residents exist side by side. But for many of its at-risk children summer is the unhealthiest time of year. Their activity levels drop drastically, with far fewer recreational opportunities than better-off peers. That means poorer children start at a new school with less confidence, worse concentration & poorer health. FC GIO intervenes at this crucial stage, giving kids a vital boost when they need it most with a 5-day programme designed specifically to help them embark on this new chapter in their life with enthusiasm & confidence. Ex-Arsenal star Giovanni Van Bronckhorst has covered the costs of designing & delivering the programme, but we need your help to get over the finish line
