Hackney Giving Live raises £9,525k for local charities

Hackney Giving Live returned on 22 June 2017 with a live crowdfunder in the stylish offices of Capco in Great Eastern Street. Three charities pitched for funding and were well rewarded by a generous audience who donated over £9.5k. 

The Huddleston Centre will use the funds to set up Huddleston Juice -  a juice bar social enterprise which will be led by young people, Storeys will run arts projects for young people in care and care leavers, and Vital Exposure will use the funding to train disabled writers through a structured programme of coaching, mentoring and staged productions.

A fantastic night was had by all. Thanks to Capco for hosting us, to Ava Vidal for the laughs, to The Funding Network for their continued partnership, and to the crowd for digging deep and supporting these fantastic local groups.  

Plans are already under way for our next Hackney Giving Live in December 2017 – watch this space!
