New hush Refuge pyjama campaign

Source By: Refuge Charity

Just to share a new campaign that we have launched with hush, a lovely clothing line that has chosen Refuge as its charity partner for this year. Hush have designed a special edition set of pyjamas and eye mask especially in support of Refuge; for every set sold for £60 hush are generously donating £52 – the equivalent of one night in a refuge for a woman and her children, as well as essential practical and emotional support. 

You can read more about the pyjamas and purchase them here

Everyone loves a set of new pyjamas for Christmas so they’d make a really lovely gift, the campaign will run till Christmas but they are likely to sell out quickly so make sure you buy a pair sooner rather than later!

Healthier Hackney & City Fund

Welcome back!

We're almost ready for another year of innovative health projects

Another summer has passed, and as we head into autumn there's one thing on our mind- year 4 of the Healthier Hackney Fund! We've been working hard to bring some exciting new aspects to the grants scheme, and are very nearly ready to share them with you.

The main news is that the Public Health team has been working closely with colleagues in the City and Hackney CCG to merge the Healthier Hackney Fund with their Innovation Fund. We're maintaining the same level of funding so this will now be a £500,000 pot, and will combine the principles and focus on innovation that has been central to both from the start.

Save the date

We'll be able to say much more about the structure and format when we launch formally on Thursday 19th October. Details of the event will follow next week, but please put a hold in your diary for the morning- as with last year it'll be a drop in event so we hope you'll be able to join us.

Don't worry if you can't make it- we'll be publishing the details on our webpage and will be touring as many local events as we can get in October and November. If you're running something you'd like us to attend please get in touch!
