Operation Cup of Tea in Portobello & Golborne Market continues to serve the North Kensington community
Do you remember Operation Cup of Tea, responding to the London Riots in 2011?
In just one day, volunteers, local charities and community groups served over 1000 cups of tea to local residents and visitors whilst providing a positive space for people to drop by and for the Portobello & Golborne market area community to come together.
The event was so successful that the Council’s Community Engagement Team held a series of similar events around the borough and named their monthly newsletter “Community Cuppa”.
In the summer of 2017 following the Grenfell Tower Fire, Operation Cup of Tea created a regular hub in the heart of North Kensington in Tavistock Square to provide a friendly face, local information and a heart-warming cuppa to anyone who’d like it.
Keep calm and put the kettle on!
Volunteer Centre Kensington & Chelsea are re-launching Operation Cup of Tea starting from Friday 20th July 2018 in Tavistock Square.
The stall will provide Portobello & Golborne market area residents of North Kensington the opportunity to drop by, enjoy a free cup of tea, and have an informal chat. Information regarding local services and summer activities for families will also be on hand for participating organisations to distribute on the day.
Want to get involved?
Organisations and groups are invited to participate in Operation Cup of Tea, to share information with the local community on what support is on offer. We will be in Tavistock Square every Friday 10am to 3pm until the end of September 2018.
We would love to host your project! Come along to share your work with the public. To book a space contact Nadia at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 24th July 2018.
