Pile on the Pounds for Magic Me

Posted by Magic Me on 2017-08-14

Pile on the Pounds for Magic Me – not a new controversial diet but an opportunity to put the old ’round pound’ to good use before it goes out of circulation on 15th October.  All you have to do is download our pack of three images here .Each one represents something your pounds might buy for the charity: a taxi ride for an older person to get to an activity, supplies for a cocktail party, art and activity materials for a project. Choose one and cover it in old round pounds – they may well be lurking in the bottom of old handbags or down the back of the sofa! Once you’ve covered the picture tweet us a photo and then either bank and send us the money or come along to our AGM on 10th October and simply hand it over!  Do get in touch with our Fundraising Co-ordinator, Imogen at imogenduffin@magicme.co.uk if you have any questions on this or other ideas for fundraising.

Generation Games with 64 Million Artists

Posted by Magic Me on 2017-08-14

Throughout August , 64 Million Artists (a national campaign to unlock the potential of everyone in the UK through creativity) is running ‘Generation Games’ a series of daily creative challenges to encourage young and old to get together and share some fun.

Magic Me has been invited to suggest two of these challenges, one is themed around Cocktails, the other around the work we did for Stepney Stories using shadow puppets.

Inspired by our Cocktails In Care Homes project – Make Personalised Cocktails or Mocktails: Find someone who isn’t the same age as you, a relative, friend of the family or neighbour and have a chat about what your interests are, particularly things you like to drink? If you were a flavour what would it be? What are your favourite flavours, ingredients and drinks? Find out more about this challenge here

Inspired by our Stepney Stories project – Create your own shadow puppet theatre – find out more here
