SLOW’s 15th Anniversary Party

SLOW’s 15th Anniversary Party

On Saturday 25th June we celebrated our 15th Anniversary with an afternoon tea at the Ecology Centre, Islington with SLOW past and present members, volunteers, trustees and staff.

   

     

It was a chance to say a massive thank you to our volunteers and trustees who help SLOW in so many ways.

   

    

Such a lovely, hope filled day…. from the words of our cofounder, Nic Whitworth:

Hope is not an out-of-body, out-of-reach platitude at SLOW, it is a verb, an action – we DO hope by simply being here together

Thanks to everyone who came along, helped out and to Waitrose for the generous food donations and nomination for Community Matters.

SLOWsibs Clay Spring Workshop

SLOWsibs Clay Spring Workshop

On Saturday 19th March we ran our SLOWsibs workshop, in person, for the first time in a year. It was such a pleasure to work with the children who were there to remember their brothers and sisters who have died.

We worked with clay and all sorts of treasures were made in commemoration.  Mariama was remembering her brother Ishmael. Casper was remembering his sister Cora and his brother Larkin. Victor was remembering his brother Martin. And Tiger was remembering her sister Rosie.

As well as using clay, the kids had a great game of football in the garden.

Thanks to all who came and our lovely volunteers Lisa and Fatima.

Our next workshop is June 18th, if you’d like to register your interest, please email info@slowgroup.co.uk
