JtoJ national gathering
Saturday October 27th 2018 St. John’s Church, Stratford
We enjoyed another positive and productive day with members of JtoJ groups from Newcastle, Sheffield, Bristol, Brent, Kingston-upon-Thames, Islington and international volunteers and members. It was a chance to share experiences of running the JtoJ exhibition programme and how to ensure impact and legacy. Those planning to bring the exhibition to their community could learn from colleagues who’ve been through it already and new ideas were developed. After a splendid lunch prepared as always by Pat Boyer and Mary Campbell, we were joined by supporters interested in discussing our new project focus which will be economic justice, class and poverty in the UK.
What did you enjoy most about the day? The energy. Great people. Learnt some great ideas for Islington based on Nottingham (and others’ experience). Very good group of people to mix with for a day. Very in-depth discussions. Meeting like-minded people. Economic injustice discussions Hearing about the legacy of JtoJ in Newham, Sheffield & Bristol. Meeting new, well-informed people. Brainstorming – nice open ‘blue sky’ approach. Good atmosphere. Meeting lots of brilliant people.
