Winter Warmer Supper Club

Winter Warmer was a free event consisting of music and a three course meal provided by Cally Munchy and massage and other activities provided by I Am a Well Being

About the Project

Ellie McLean (I Am a Well Being) and Ebenezer Sogunro (Cally Munchy) joined together to create the Winter Warmer Supper Club event at the Pembury Community Centre in Hackney on Friday 11th December 2015. Ellie offered free seated massages and organised face painting and children’s activities led by volunteers. Ebenezer provided a seated three course fusion-feast for parents and children preparing all the plates and drinks himself with the help from his team in the kitchen.

The event was put on to bring families together before Christmas to share in a positive environment in an often stressful time of the year. Children were entertained with games and activities while parents were able to sit together chatting, eating and enjoying a free 15 minute massage. Both Ellie and Ebenezer have a passion for using their talents to benefit others and the Winter Warm Supper Club was a perfect way to do this.

The Impact

A total of 61 people attended the Winter Warmer event which was a great success. Both parents and children had an enjoyable evening with many commenting on the quality of the food and the free massage they received from Ellie. While trying to coordinate an event of this size and scope was a tall order for Ebenezer, Ellie and their support crews, both Young Leaders handled themselves and their respective responsibilities for the event with calmness and poise. Both Pembury Centre staff and residents alike had praise for the event.

Future Developments

Both Elie and Ebenezer are keen to continue putting on projects for their community in the future. Ebenezer is continuing to develop his Cally Munchy food brand and is hoping to offer more of his fusion food creations to other Peabody estates across London. Ellie is also planning a follow-up event to take place at her estate in Tulse Hill which will be an opportunity for other young people from her estate to use this event to start their own business like she did.
