There is a story behind every face!
Too often we are too busy to notice others…
On Saturday senior staff from #TeamHaringey6 joined the wonderful people at 639 Enterprise Centre on Tottenham High Road to help with the Street Kitchen. The day was such a revelation for us and it made us understand once more that a smile, a kind word, a second of listening can change someone’s day. It certainly as Clint Eastwood used to say made our day!
We found ourselves surrounded by all this wonderful people who give their Saturdays for no other reason than to help others. While we were there, on the High Street there was a protest march for peace. There were many, many people young and not so young from Tottenham just asking for peace. Just that…
Tottenham is a wonderful place…because the people here are so special, so selfless, diverse and unique.
There is a story behind every face. Haringey Sixth Form College takes its community responsibility seriously, we know the part education plays in giving life chances, increasing social mobility etc.
Russ Lawrance Principal of Haringey Sixth Form College who attended along with Vice Principal Lisa Westray and Assistant Director Florina Iosif to help serve the food, commented: “We were so impressed by everyone and everything at the Street Kitchen that we have committed the college, our staff and our students to help out each month. We are committed to supporting all these wonderful people in our wonderful community. I am delighted that Florina got me and thus the college involved. Florina really lives our values and we are keen to support her initiative”. He went on: “We have amazing staff here at the college who always go the extra mile. Makes me a very proud Principal.”
