We have been friends for four years and work at the Source in Barking with the homeless and others in need. We want to extend what we do in our daily work and use our experience to prevent loneliness and isolation on New Years Eve. We have come up with an idea to celebrate New Years Eve with part of the Thames View community and to promote the well-being of the vulnerable on our estate.
We are hoping that this event will open new doors for other community events in 2020. We are also hoping for long term friendships to develop.
We are looking for funding to help us achieve an unforgettable night with such things as a DJ, catering, decorations, children's entertainer etc. Although we already have a hall arranged, we will use some of the money towards the hire of the hall.
This is a family event so we would like to keep the children safe and entertained with various children's entertainers.
