It's great to see London buzzing again with the Paralympics taking place. We were lucky enough to be at some of the Olympic events and are feeling very proud of our great city and Britain's amazing athletes. Truly an inspiration.
We also saw some pretty inspiring stuff at our Storythyme event on the 14th August. A fantastic night was had by all. The weather was a vast improvement on the monsoon-like conditions we experienced last year at the Dalston Roof Park and our speakers were as captivating and moving as ever.
Gaylene Gould talked about the brave steps she took to make significant changes in her life and gave the audience some great stimulus for thought.
Susie Wheeldon shared her courageous story of cycling 14,500 miles across the globe, a majority of it through the harsh conditions of the Saharan desert, to raise awareness of solar power - an amazing young lady indeed.
Sean Carasso told us the moving story of how he came to learn of the child soldiers in The Congo who are sent to the front lines armed only with a whistle and how this led him to start his campaign to end the war; calling it 'Falling Whistles'.
Check out their videos and maybe you can find some inspiration to make some changes yourself.
We're returning to the Dalston Roof Park for an evening of inspiring true stories and alfresco dining with Funthyme cooking up a tasty BBQ.

One of the best books we have read this year is the contentious first book from Owen Jones - Chavs: The Demonisation of the Working Class is a revealing read which discusses how the voice of the working class has been taken away and how our salt of the Earth is now regarded as the scum of the Earth. A real socio-political eye opener; Jones explains how class hatred has become the last acceptable form of prejudice.
We know you can't make every event so here are a few of our favourite speakers from the last year...
Noel 'Razor' Smith has joined us twice - he is that good. Catch his story here of how after 33 years in prison he turned his life around, taught himself to read and write and now mentors young convicts to help them find a better path. A truly captivating story.
