Spitalfields Crypt TrustOn Sunday 14th of June, the Spitalfields Crypt Trust (SCT) are putting on the “Shakespeare’s Shoreditch Garden Party”.

This is a summer fete to celebrate the launch of the new Shakespeare’s garden at St Leonard’s Church.

They are paying travel expenses (for local buskers) and lunch. Here’s why you should get involved:

In aid of SCT, a local charity that has been working with the homeless and people in recovery from drink and drug addictions since 1965. This year we’re celebrating our 50th anniversary and this is one of our celebratory events.

And a quote they just got in:

“i got a nice woman now nice home everything i could ask for not in doorway. If something is bothering me now i talk it out with someone, not drink it out because the problem still there next day and day after so i can say this. SCT showed me how to live again. i spent more time in the cells i could of got job there. SCT turned my life around.”
