St Hilda's East News 2019

MARCH

 

St Hilda’s East will officially launch its 130th Anniversary celebrations on 1st April! They have been working hard over the last few months to organise a series of events throughout the year that will bring together the community, old and new, to celebrate this milestone of St Hilda’s East. From inter generational games to a street party, they are excited to be taking this opportunity to reflect on what St Hilda’s East has achieved in the last 130 years.

Alongside their fundraising dinner at the Mercers’ Hall on 1st October (kindly made available by The Mercers’ Company), they are organising a series of smaller fundraising events over the course of this exciting year. For those not able to attend the celebrations there will be other ways to mark the 130th anniversary and support the work of St Hilda’s East. They are launching an Anniversary Appeal to enable them to continue the much needed work in the East End of London into the next 130 years. Donations small or large are very much appreciated and can be made to the 130th Anniversary Fund; Bank: Natwest, Sort code: 60-80-01, Account no: 37331760. Thank you. 

If you would like to keep up to date with what they are getting up to in the months ahead, please do follow them on their social media accounts: https://www.instagram.com/sthildaseast/ / www.twitter.com/StHildasEast / and check out their newly designed website: www.sthildas.org.uk. They are using the hashtag #StHildas130 so please do spread the word!

FEBRUARY

 

Established by the Cheltenham Ladies’ College Guild, St Hilda’s East is celebrating its 130th anniversary this year. A range of opportunities are being organised to celebrate this wonderful landmark.

A special 130th fundraising dinner will be held at the prestigious Mercers’ Hall in the City of London on Tuesday 1st October. The Mercers’ Company is kindly donating use of its hall and paying for food for the occasion for St Hilda’s, and all funds raised will go to St Hilda’s East, enabling it to continue its much needed work into the future. St Hilda’s are selling event tickets for £500 (with discounts for tables) which includes a wonderful three course meal, wine and entertainment.  

We plan to hold a more modestly priced anniversary event for Guild members, and details of this will be made available in upcoming editions of Guild News. We very much look forward to sharing St Hilda’s East historic birthday with Guild members! Other events during the course of the year will include a community ‘Olympic games’ in our community centre during Easter and a summer street party.

For those not able to come to our celebrations there will be other ways to mark our  130th anniversary and support the work of St Hilda’s East. Donations small or large are very much appreciated and can be made to our 130th Anniversary Fund; Bank: Natwest, Sort code: 60-80-01, Account no: 38331760. Thank you.
