Grow Crossbones a fantastic success for Events Academy 2015

Bankside and You Success Story + News
The Events Academy Students of 2015 would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported their Grow Crossbones fundraising event.
Redcross Way

The Events Academy students of 2015 are delighted with their first ever event.

With the help of local businesses they beat their target of raising £200, reaching a total of £425.70 which will be used by BOST for the development of Crossbones Garden. Donations can still be made if you would like to encourage your colleagues to donate.

The students are delighted to have been part of the process of creating Bankside’s newest green space. Please take the time to go visit the garden on your lunch break. It’s now open every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 11am - 2pm.

There is also a Crossbones Vigil for the Outcast held on the 23rd of every month, meet 6.45 for 7pm start at the gates of Crossbones, Redcross Way, SE1 1TA.
