Five Reasons I Love The MakeLunch Team

Five Reasons I Love The MakeLunch Team

We're celebrating our fifth birthday this year with a series of blog posts from MakeLunch friends and family. That's a whole lot of people - the children we serve and their families, the volunteers who make the clubs happen, our funders, our supporters, our trustees and our patron. And then there's our staff. This year the MakeLunch team has grown to 6 people which is pretty amazing given that we started 2015 as a team of 2. So here are five reasons I love the MakeLunch team

The five best things to put in sandwiches

The five best things to put in sandwiches

We're celebrating our fifth birthday this year with a series of blog posts from MakeLunch friends and family. We asked loads of people we've worked with, been inspired by, got to know and learnt from. And we asked Jamie. Jamie is the editor of Premier Youthwork and Premier Childrenswork Magazines. They mention us in articles every now and then. Rach once asked Jamie to order lunch for a group of people. Then she saw his list of the five best things to put in sandwiches.

Five people who are special to Baby Basics

Five people who are special to Baby Basics

We're celebrating our fifth birthday this year with a series of blog posts from MakeLunch friends and family. MakeLunch has grown so much since we started in 2011 and that's very much thanks to the fact that we've been incubated by the Cinnamon Network - a network of Christian Social Franchises just like us. Through the incubation programme we've received all sorts of help and advice including leadership development, strategic advice, training, network-building, funding opportunities and the chance to meet teams from other charities and learn from their experience too. Baby Basics is one of those. It's a fantastic project which gives new mothers and their babies an amazing bundle of useful goodies. The very brilliant Hannah Peck started Baby Basics and has written about the five groups of people who are really special to them…
