The word of the week is …. BIG!

We like big at Accumul8. We always have big plans on how to make things better for the residents at the North London YMCA Hostel and how to improve their lives through creative activities. What we like even more is when other people think big and help us to reach our goals!

So, on the theme of big… we have recently received a big order from Social Enterprise UK for their awards evening. Yes, 255 lovely jars of Accumul8  jams and chutneys have been requested. It’s our biggest order to date and will be keeping us busy for the next few weeks, that’s for certain. Thankyou lovely SEUK!

If you want a big, tasty sandwich for your lunch and want to support Accumu8, then, The Haberdashery are now doing an Accumul8 ham, cheese and chutney sandwich. They are using our lovely Morrocan Apple and Date Chutney and are also selling jars of the stuff at their cafe on Middle Lane, N8. We are really grateful for their support, as this sort of collaboration between retailers and Accumul8 helps us to spread our message, work with the community and give people a taste of the loveliness of the Accumul8 preserves.

And finally, we have some very big news, with a very big company re-designing the Accumul8 labels and logo, in industry terms it’s called a re-brand. It’s still a bit hush hush, but don’t worry, once we get the official go-ahead we will make sure everyone knows of our next bit of BIG NEWS!!

See you at two upcoming events, Apple Day at Hornsey Vale Community Centre, Mayfield Road, N8 on 18th December from 2 – 5pm and then at the VERY BIG Crouch End Festival Craft Fair on 6th December outside Hornsey Town Hall, Crouch End Broadway.

And to end on here is a video of the fab Accumul8 photography exhibition. Accumul8 is all about giving people chances and new experiences in life. This video was made by a first year student at Ravensbourne – it was a new experience for him too!
