|20 June 2020 – DAY 80|
|TOTAL SERVED TO DATE||25,967|
Unfortunately another skywalker’s bike was stolen in Neal Street tonight. As far as I am aware that is the 3rd bike stolen in a month or so in the same location. That good people get robbed whilst being of service to the most vulnerable is just ridiculous for lack of a better word. So we will run a separate funding campaign to get these bikes replaced. Clearly we can’t use existing funds as they were raised on a different promise. If you have had your bike stolen outside Punjab then please contact me.
Day 1 of the last 14 days before we changeover to a reduced format. We are getting that format in place now so will be able to share more soon. Monique has now opened up the schedule for bookings up to 5 July. If you are an experienced Skywalker then please make sure you book one of those tickets if they are available.
TSG are having to vacate their space at Public Hall on 4th July. In fact they have already had to move their clothing storage to a smaller room at Public Hall. For that reason they are only taking orders for critical needs requests.
Last night we started handing out sunscreen sponsored by Sun Sense and The Melanoma Fund who we are running a joint campaign with. The exposure to the sun that our homeless friends have to ensure is an issue very rarely brought up, so it is really great we can help do this. In fact most likely BBC will want to a piece around this. Have a look at the campaign here. Great work from Sara V and Rebekah C to get this campaign together.
Tonight the Kings Cross team got a suggestion for our UOS playlist from homeless friend Frank:
Choir! Choir! Choir! sings The Band – The Weight
And actually what a great idea to ask our homeless friends to add to our playlist…inspiration for tomorrow’s teams.
