Those of you that pay attention will know that I try to help the Oxford Homeless Project. I think that this project is all about such a simple but great idea – those that are able to donate food and/or time to cook and/or serve lunch to those that are in need. Lunch certainly is well received, both the curries and the cakes. This week I was able to attend their fortnightly lunch and help a bit with serving drinks, washing up, and putting things away. (And I was lucky enough to sample the rice, which was amazing!) I also took the opportunity to get a few photos and some opinions on the project, to help fill a calendar I am working on, to sell in aid of the OHP.
This has taken a long time to come together, but now I have a few pages complete and plans to take the necessary photos for another three within the next week, and I’m waiting for permission for the remaining few. I admit that it’s not been as easy as I’d first imagined, finding suitable properties and then finding the right person to ask permission. Then trying to find a way to sell the calendars when they are ready. There has been a lot more admin involved than I’d anticipated. But a gardening injury has kept me away from my tools this afternoon so I’ve made good progress with a number of enquiries. Come back in a few weeks to see how things are going – hopefully I’ll soon be able to give some details about sales, but for now here are a few photos from yesterday’s lunch.
