‘When We Were Kings’
A huge thank you to Richmond Osei, who donated an amazing £775 to us from the sales of his book ‘Dylan’s Dilemma‘ together with sales and vendor contributions from his ‘When We Were Kings‘ pop up shop in Croydon, South London during Black History Month.
Please look out for Richmond’s book on Amazon and other independent book shops.
Black History Month Online Quiz
A lot of fun was had by all who participated in our annual Black History Month Quiz. This year it was spiced up with live performances, all the way from Grenada, by Soca artists Top Cat and Nabil Abbu who had as dancing in our living rooms.
Thank you, through your participation and donations we raised £405!
During the month of May we held over 20 fitness and dance online classes with professional instructors. We got fit and shook our bodies whilst raising money for a great cause! A huge thank you to everyone who took part. Here’s just a small selection of some of the classes that we worked up a sweat and had fun in.
You helped us raised an amazing £397.40!
We challenged our supporters to walk, run, skip, wheel their way around the circumference of Grenada (in their imagination of course!) in the month of April. It was a 75mile/121km journey passing through all the beautiful parishes of the Isle of Spice. Thank you to those who sponsored our participants!
Your sponsorship helped us to raise £550!

Congratulations to the winners, Team 3BB. Who will take them on next year?
