We have a new office!

We’re super excited to announce that as of today, Good Apples is based at Trampery Republic – a new co-working space for creative entrepreneurs in Poplar.

Our space has been provided as part of the Trampery’s Creative Pioneers programme that supports early stage businesses and start-ups. As part of our membership, we’ll be putting on workshops for members throughout the year covering aspects of our work – perhaps throwing in some macrame too.  

Trampery Republic commands the top floor of Anchorage House with spectacular views across London – so apologies in advance for smug photos! We’re looking forward to meeting and working with fellow Trampery residents who come from a range of industries.

The Starfish Project: providing meals for refugees

In the last three years, Europe has experienced the greatest mass movement of people since World World Two. There are currently over 21 million refugees worldwide, and 1.2 million people fleeing from war and terror in Syria, South Sudan, Myanmar and Iraq, need resettlement right now. The numbers are overwhelming and the news stories are very upsetting. Many of us want to help, but it’s hard to know how.   

Our friends at The Starfish Project partner with restaurants, cafes and food businesses in this country, who add an optional donation to customers’ bills, in order to raise funds food projects in locations where refugees are residing in camps, feeling scared, cold and hungry.
