The Funding Network TFN is a national organisation that brings together businesses in local areas to give funds to worthy projects such as Branches. The Oxford event is in May and we need to find a 'sponsor' to speak on our behalf and to raise a £250 seeding donation by the 18th February to give us access to this event. This would give us a chance to raise up to £4000 of funds to support our vision.
You can donate on line below.
Or come in for a drink or breakfast or lunch and donate in person.
Burns Supper, 25th January 2019
For the first of Branches Pop-Up evening events 30 Paying Guests enjoyed this traditional evening of Scot's food and culture at Branches. The Young Leaders helped Chef prep and deliver the traditional Menu of Cullen Skink Soup for starters, Haggis with Tatties and Neeps, for main and Cranachen for Dessert.
As well as the gret food there were the traditional grace, addressing of the Haggis and a toast not to the laddies and the lassies but across the gender spectrum. After the formalities and the meal everyone joined in Scottish stye dancing, and much fun was had by all guests and Branches team. Well done the Young Leaders for their hard work before during and after the event. Thanks Branches Team for putting this event on. We look forward to the next Pop-Up.
Pre Christmas Feast!
To finish off the year at Branches we invited Families in need of a little help with their Christmas cheer and the homeless to join us for a Pre Christmas Feast on the 22nd December from 11:00 am.
Donations of hats, gloves scarves, sock, travel mugs, toothbrushes, shower gel, pocket tissues, sanitary products, wipes, dog food/treats just add water food and drinks sachets were taken and distributed on the day.
After lots of help peeling spuds, and hatching sprouts we were glad to provide this delicious hot meal to all who attended. The remaining food and donations were distributed to the community fridge in Botley, the Food Bank, and the Gatehouse homeless project.
A BIG THANKS to all who donated money food clothes and time to support
Back in late October!
Halloween proved a spooky time with Squeak and Mutate-O soup, eyeballs and Witches Fingers on the menu.
A few joined us on the day to dress up get scary make-up on ready to go out trick or treating, and Our Young Leaders partied on Thursday evening, reprising their own costumes from the day before and comparing their hoards of sweetie treasures.
