Update for the last week of July

Jani here – another week of this weird time done. This week we:

Ran three online streamed shows to a total of 114 households.

Fed 21 households in Southampton and Totton with our deliveries of meals, including some paid forward meals.

Distributed food in our community pantry on Wednesday and Saturday.

Had a small number of kerbside customers on Saturday including two regulars who sat outside! At a table! Whoop!

Had a generous donation of £100 from one regular who we haven’t seen since early March (you know who you are and we miss you sooooo much).

Had our directors AGM (very quick and distanced of course) to sign some accounts – and met our accountant.

Bik has been valiantly filling in the funding application for the emergency funding for music venues from the Arts Council, with Jacqs helping with the figures for this. Wish us luck.

Jani & Ziggy harvested some beans and herbs from the allotment, these went into one of our dishes on Saturday. Yums.

On Friday the government announced a delay to reopening performances, we had not put any plans in place to start performances with audiences yet and agree with this decision. It’s too soon 😞

Next week is our very first live stream from the House!

I’m going to add some links in the comments to things I have talked about here if you want to find out more, watch a livestream, order food, donate or get involved.
