Here's what's coming up this December
Whitehawk Food Bank
Think of Christmas and what most springs to mind? It’s food, right? And not just the gluttony of Christmas lunch, but all the other treats that go hand-in-hand with the season’s festivities: satsumas, mince pies, cheese, leftover sandwiches, sneaky late night chocolates with your nan.
Sadly, for many people in Brighton & Hove this is isn’t the case. Whitehawk foodbank has seen a 62% rise in admissions between April and September 2017; that equals a massive 246 3-day emergency supply boxes. The city’s homeless problems as a whole are well documented, with 4,218 recorded rough living or in temporary accommodation.
In association with the Trussell Trust, PLATF9RM will be collecting donations from members for the Whitehawk foodbank throughout December. Please be as generous as you can. Donations should be dried, tinned or jarred goods - if you would like to include Christmas treats by all means do!
Please speak with Kerry and Leanne on how to donate, thank you.

No matter what your passion or niche, these breakfasts will give you the chance to meet other members and maybe learn a new thing or two. And all before midday!

PLATF9RM's Xmas Ho Ho Social
This will be the last PLATF9RM Social of the year and it's promised to be a festive get together before everyone puts their feet up for the Christmas holidays. Think gluhwein (that's mulled wine), wreaths, a different take on Secret Santa and the chance to finally see Jess implode with festivity.
