2018 - October to December
With significant progress towards becoming a fully registered charity, we can look back on 2018 as having been an exciting year for SACCO. As well as our popular Independence and BHM community events, we’ve been busy organising a new and inspiring mentoring scheme to engage young people with careers in entertainment and food. Yet there is still work to be done, and in 2019 we aim to further develop our mentoring scheme and introduce new initiatives to support older members of the community. We will also continue to raise awareness of African and Caribbean culture through events, socials and workshops. All members of the community are welcome, so keep an eye on our website for further details.
In 2019 it will be 10 years since the redoubtable Mrs. Veronica Fritzon founded Sutton’s first Black History group. We would not have survived without your help and generosity, and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank our members, friends, supporters and sponsors.
