We touched our toes

Fierce Grace Brixton 'Can you touch your toes?' event for Soup Kitchen

Well, wasn’t Saturday a treat?

A huge THANK YOU to all who came along to support our Touch Your Toes event in Windrush Square on Saturday afternoon. We had a fantastic turn out – 80 of you all practicing Fierce Grace yoga in the open air! We were also thrilled at the generous donations given by you to the excellent local charity, Brixton Soup Kitchen. £234.76 donated by you, of which we match funded £175, totalling a cool £409.76.

The class was taught by Fierce Grace founder, Michele Pernetta, alongside our FGB studio regular, Shirley Williams. Solomon and Mahamed from Brixton Soup Kitchen came down to take part in class as well and they’ll be using the donations from this event to help fund a new van for the Soup Kitchen.

Solomon Smith, founder and managing director of the Brixton Soup Kitchen, said: “We want to reach out to more homeless people. There are a lot of people around Brixton who do not want to come in to the kitchen because the estate we are based in had a bad reputation in the 80’s. We have a lot of clients in Vauxhall, Camden Town and also around Victoria and we want to be able to go to them.”

It’s not too late to donate to the Soup Kitchen’s van fund – drop into our studio and donate there and also make sure you come to the next mass outdoor Fierce Grace class in Windrush Square!

Please keep an eye open for new members who joined after practising for the first time at the Square and give them a big welcome to our very special community.

Thank you once again for being brilliant!
