On Thursday 13th August 2020, the Nicholas Stewart Project held their annual community fun day on the Henry Prince Estate. The event was arranged by the founder of the Nicholas Stewat Project Jennifer Beckford. The theme of the day was “Moving Forward in Hope”.
The Nicholas Stewart Project were raising awareness of their vision to provide support for families and people affected by violent crime. This will be in the format of a online telephone support helpline called “Whats Bothering You” They are also proposing to work in partnership with other agencies to provide professional and recreational support to families.
The challenges of COVID-19 did not prevent the event from being a success. There was a football session hosted by Chelsea Foundation Kicks, giving youngsters the opportunity to enjoy developing their skills. The local MP Rosena Allin Khan gave a refreshing speech, encouraging us to continue to work together as a community. Jolly Jules kept the crowd fed and watered with a selection of their delicious hot dogs, pop corn and drink.
The crowd were entertained with songs, music and a recital of one of the Covid-19, Lock Down Essay competition organised by the Nicholas Stewart Project recently.
All in all it was a blessed afternoon. No one left without a goody bag and a motivational word of hope.
It’s not too late to make a donation on the Nichols Stewart Project Just Giving Page.
