We have launched a Spacehive crowdfunding campaign for the Hornbeam Centre and Hornbeam Nights and would love your help!
We want to continue creating our Hornbeam Nights evening workshops, supper clubs and music events to support our amazing community but need to update our equipment that has, well…. seen better days!
As Charlie who organises our events says: “We want to provide an ethical and sustainable space for creatives, where aspiring musicians, DJs, workshop facilitators, small businesses and chefs, can walk into and feel held and supported not only by just but by decent gear and equipment.
“If you can give a little today into our pot, we will keep on giving in the way the Hornbeam has been doing in many ways for the past 30 years….”
A VERY SPECIAL, COMMUNITY HUB
The Hornbeam is a community anchor, providing space to groups, support and incubation of new ideas, and a point of entry for people wanting to take action. We support people lacking in confidence and skills to set up new social enterprises and community initiatives.
For example the cafe and kitchen space is currently being used to support a supper club run by refugees, offer free meals made from surplus food, and as a pop-up cafe enabling a new catering enterprise run by women on very low incomes to trial things out before taking on their own space.
We also teach cooking and low cost living skills as well as providing a safe and supportive space. Hornbeam Nights host music, educational film nights, supper clubs, environmental & social change workshops. We are always running on a shoe-string and we’ve decided to reach out in order to sustain our people-focused community events.
Have a look at our events to see the various wonderful things happening all the time!
CAN YOU HELP?
So we’d love it if you could help us keep building our community with our latest community business idea! Every successful Hornbeam Night raises money for and builds our community further.
But in order to continue our work we need some help to bring ourselves up-to-date with some better technology to help the events we organise inspire and enthuse.
Please help by supporting our Crowdfunder and sharing this fundraising campaign www.spacehive.com/hornbeamnights
And we hope to see you at the Hornbeam sometime very soon!
We also need social media volunteers to spread the word or volunteers to seek support from local businesses! If you can help please contact Charlie at firstname.lastname@example.org
