Events

We hold a range of events to inform about homelessness, engage people in supporting the Connection, and to raise money. All upcoming events are listed below with more information and how to get involved.

Friends’ Day 26 September 2020
This year Friends’ Day was already scheduled to take place later than is traditional, so as to avoid the hottest weather. This year Friends Day will take place as planned on the afternoon of Saturday 26 September, but because of Covid-19, will be a virtual event, using Zoom videoconferencing software. This will allow many more Friends to participate, especially those who live some way from London, as you can take part from the comfort of your own home, with no need to travel! This will help us all to minimise the risks we face from Covid-19.

The Friends Day event will include a presentation from Pam Orchard, Chief Executive of The Connection, as well as a filmed, narrated tour of the organisation’s premises to show the changes that have been made to keep clients and staff safe. We will also speak with clients about their journeys and their experiences over recent months, as The Connection has supported them through the pandemic. The event will, as usual, include our Annual General Meeting (AGM).
