Film Screening of Running for Good
Sep 22 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

RUNNING FOR GOOD, the feature-length sports documentary follows world record marathon runner Fiona Oakes in her attempt not only to set a new global record in endurance racing, but to compete in the “toughest footrace on earth,” the Marathon Des Sables, a 250km race through the Sahara Desert.
Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as a unique endurance runner. She is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents, and the north pole, in both cumulative and elapsed time. Fiona’s achievements are made even more astounding due to the fact that she was told at age 14 that she would never walk properly, let alone ever run. She would undergo more than 17 radical knee surgeries which ultimately led to having her entire right kneecap removed. The process was agonizing, the rehab worse, the records she’s gone on to set even more astounding.

With overcoming her own adversity, Fiona’s true drive to achieve incredible feats of speed and human endurance are motivated by a deep desire to raise awareness for the plight of animals. Her achievements help fund a 450+ animal sanctuary that she takes care of every day.

Join us for an optional (but tasty!) vegan meal first from 6.30pm (main is suggested donation £3, pudding is suggested donation of £1).
We’ll put the film on at 7.30pm. Suggested donation of £2 or £3 to watch the film – all donations for the film screening will go to Tower Hill sanctuary (which Fiona runs). We’ll also be selling copies of Jo’s Vegan Nosh at the event for £5, all proceeds of the book that evening will go to Tower Hill Stables Sanctuary: http://www.towerhillstables.com/

Overcoming our internal neoliberal monster workshop
Sep 29 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Overcoming our internal neoliberal monster

Workshop by Making Change Collective in collaboration with Plan C

Date/time: Sunday 29th September, 4 – 6pm

Across the world, neoliberalism has been the dominant way of organizing economically, socially and politically for the past three decades. Even if we are unfamiliar with the word, it shapes all our lives and even our ways of thinking. Of course, we may be highly critical of a growth-based economy in which capital and corporations are freer than ever to do as they will. At the same time, we can’t help but internalize this overpowering ideology, shaping the way that we feel we can or can’t take action. We receive the message from neoliberalism that, ‘you can achieve anything if you try hard enough,’ and then internalize feelings of inadequacy when we find we hit invisible barriers. We know that things are getting worse, but we feel there’s nothing we can do to really change anything, because we’ve come to understand that ‘there is no alternative’.

This workshop seeks to deconstruct the beliefs that are holding us back and to begin to build a new framework together for going forth in the world. It will include collective reflection of how the workshop could be best used in the future.
