A Syrian Love Story screening with Films for Food

AVRA3125A syrian love story April

Hub 67 was fully booked for a recent Films for Food screening of the award winning A Syrian Love Story, filmed over 5 years by Sean McAllister, who joined us for a Q&A. Films for Food events collect donations for local foodbanks, instead of paying an entry fee. All donations went to Tower Hamlets Foodbank, First Love Foundation.

This was part of a series of events collaborating with film makers Rainbow Collective who launched Films for Food at Rich Mix in 2014. If you’re coming to a future Films for Food event, please see what  items are most in demand   (eg. honey, washing powder, long life milk and juice).

Thank you to Sean for releasing the film and supporting the event, Rainbow Collective, First Love Foundation and everyone who donated items.

Build a Bike workshop

Bikeworks ran a 2 day intensive introduction to bike mechanics – everyone who came got to build a new bike from a box which they got to take away.

Bikeworks offers other longer training courses including City & Guilds Level 1 in Cycle Mechanics which some people from this course have started.
