On the 23rd of July I attended the Dalston Bridge Charity event, alongside other Currell Staff, bar managers from Dalston superstore and other Dalston Bridge advocates.  The aim of the day was to give our fundraisers an indication of where their fundraising efforts go and hopefully inspire them to become fundraising ambassadors within their Dalston based businesses.

Our first visit was to the Bootstrap Campus. Bootstrap rent out their spaces to creative industries and use this money to fund placements for local unemployed kids. The placements aim to confidence build, whilst improving the students’ technical knowledge to pursue events training or other roles within the creative industry.

The next stop was Circle Sports, a new sports shop selling both big brands and local designers. Circle Sports use its profits to pay for placements for unemployed and uneducated individuals, who often lack confidence. At the end of the placement, Circle Sports help with interview practice and get involved with the job hunting process.

Finally we headed to Hackney Pirates. The Hackney Pirates is an enterprising charity working to develop the literacy, confidence and perseverance of young people in Hackney, so that they can achieve both in school and in the world beyond. The work they do there is great and their premises on Kingsland Road is incredibly special.

The Dalston Bridge charity prides itself on tapping into the creativity of the area and its thriving social scene. This is well reflected in the local ethos of the Dalston community; residents seem proud to support each other.

Chloe, from our Hackney office said:

“Dalston Bridge is a way of bringing people together from all walks of life to form a better community. The day was very insightful and made me certainly think twice about the input I make to this community. It was very inspiring and has left me wanting to help in any way that I can.”

The aim of Dalston Bridge isn’t to implement a blanket approach to giving. The charities would rather help less people but make a huge difference, rather than just putting bums on seats.
