The Baytree Family – a group of 20-something professionals and designers who live in a co-operative house owned by Brixton Baptist Church – is organising a “Winter Warmer” meal tomorrow (25 February) to raise money for the local homeless charity Ace of Clubs.
The hearty home-made supper is open to all and you will pay what you feel. Bring your own drinks. It’s from 7 to 10pm at Brixton Baptist Church (Corrance Rd – off Acre Lane – entrance).
The Baytree family wants to create a more connected local community with welcoming and fun events that are open to all.
They focus their events around a theme and raise money for local charities but, they say, “our principal aim is to get local people together irrespective of age and background and if we raise a bit of cash for a good local cause that’s great too”.
As well as Ace of Clubs – which provided 21,000 free meals last year, and helps homeless and vulnerable people back onto their feet – Centre Point – the national charity with hostels across London that focuses on tackling youth homelessness will also benefit from the meal.
