Thank you all so much for working together to support our ‘Give a gift of employment’ campaign for The House of St Barnabas Members Club and Charity this winter. Together we raised an amazing £2172, which will help support a homeless person through their Employment Academy and back into long term employment.
Highlights of the campaign included a guest slot at the Fintech Insider After Dark Christmas event in December, where generous Fintechers got a buzz out of contactless giving with their cards, phones, rings and watches via my Square payment device. 11:FS and Bud – thanks so much for inviting us!
Then came January’s #Cake4Good Fintech Bake Off and Cake Sale, in collaboration with fabulous Liz Lumley and Femtech Global, and hosted by Asif Faruque and the generous Level39 team at Canary Wharf. We’ll not forget Deutsche Bank’s Selasi and his signed #GBBO apron, Fintech.Finance’s show-stopping cake, or Virginie O’Shea from Aite and her felted fintech goodies in a hurry. Huge thanks to Tanya Andreasyan from Fintech Futures for doing her best impression of Mary Berry and taking on the role of judge for the afternoon.
As a token of their appreciation for your support, I am pleased to share that The House of St Barnabas are offering a House Access Pass to their Members Club for Comms for Good members and up to 3 guests during the month of March. If you would like to take the Club up on this offer, please send an email to Liz Clarke (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange your night out.
Thank you again for your continued support and encouragement. I look forward to sharing more updates, campaigns and community-focused events with you soon.
Now bring on Spring!
