Advice & Support Service

 

June 2017.......

 

Service News The Advice & Support Service is currently looking for a volunteer for the FareShare distribution. If anyone is free to assist on a Wednesday between 12-2pm to sort out and bag up bags of food please get in touch. We also require a volunteer on a daily basis from 4pm for about 30 minutes for the collection of food from Sainsbury’s, someone with a car would be ideal. If you can help can you please let Mary know via email on mary@irish-advice.com or by telephone on 020 88080454.

Our thanks again to Morrison’s & Sainsbury’s for their continued generosity in donating food for clients on a weekly basis. This food is vital to those who are experiencing hardship of one kind or another.

As Sainsburys' chosen Charity of the Year, the Irish Centre was recently presented with a cheque for £1000 for their Welfare Projects. Accepting the cheque on behalfe of the Centre is Teresa Intavarant, Advice & Support Service Manager and Moira Terrill, Haringey irish Pensioners Group.

 

From 7th November 2016 the benefit cap is reduced and is set at a different level depending on whether you live inside or outside London:

The benefit cap will impact significantly on client’s ability to manage, not least their ability to afford their rent. Each local authority should have a provision to assist people affected by this change.

Film Club

1st & 3rd Tuesday of each month at 1:30pm

Tuesday, June 6th - Black & White. Based on real events, it tells the story of   Max Stuart   (Ngoombujarra), a young   aboriginal   man who was sentenced to death after being found guilty of the murder of a nine-year-old girl on what was considered questionable evidence. It follows the fight by his lawyers David O'Sullivan (Carlyle) and Helen Devaney (Fox) to save Stuart from execution, as well as Crown Prosecutor, Roderic Chamberlain's (Dance) efforts to convict Stuart.   Rohan Rivett   editor of an   Adelaide   paper,   The News , and its publisher,   Rupert Murdoch   ( Ben Mendelsohn ) also feature as leading the public response in the campaign to save Stuart.In the final scene of the film, Max Stuart appeared as himself as an older man, driving along a dirt highway near   Alice Springs   where he now lives.

Tuesday, June 20th - The Tiger's Tail The film tells the story of Liam O'Leary an Irish property developer of humble origins who has made it big and fast on the back of the Celtic Tiger. His hubris has led him into a scheme to build a national stadium but a rival developer has connived to thwart his plans. Wildly over-extended, Liam finds himself struggling in a receding market. Stressed and over-stretched, he seems on the verge of a mental breakdown, to his horror, he sees his DOUBLE. Is this a harbinger of his death? His neglected wife, Jane is distressed by his erratic behaviour and treats his claim to have seen his Double as a hallucination. He confronts his Double and discovers a shocking truth that makes him ask the question "Who Am I?"

The Film Club is open to anyone who feels isolated or needing an outlet where they can socialise in a warm and welcoming environment. There is no cost to attend, no obligation to book in ahead you literally just turn up on your own or with some friends around 1:30pm on the day. Patricia and Christina, our fantastic volunteers, will be in attendance baking and serving lovely home baked scones and brown bread along with tea & coffee free of charge.
