This is what's on our mind as we go about our storytelling business.
What's on yours?
What is it like serving behind the counter at Hoxton Street Monster Supplies? We asked volunteer Alice Park to let us in on a few secrets. Here’s her volunteering story.
This month, we introduce volunteer writing mentor Nura Abdo. We couldn’t be more pleased to share this interview with her, in celebration of Volunteer Week.
“My name is Nura, I’m a housewife with six children – and at the same time I’m a student as well!
“The fairy tale is in a perpetual state of becoming and alteration. To keep to one version or one translation alone is to put robin redbreast in a cage” – Phillip Pullman
Is your wardrobe bursting open? Are your bookshelves overflowing? Are you having a big clear out ready for the summer? Then why not sell your unwanted things on eBay and raise money for The Ministry?
Story Ministers were delighted to welcome writer Dave Eggers for an impromptu visit to the Ministry of Stories. He spent time chatting with volunteers, sharing stories about the incredible 826 Centres that he founded and drinking British tea.
Here at the Ministry we say a huge thank you to Matt Hill for raising a monstrous £750 for us. Matt organizes an annual ‘Superhunt’ which takes teams of budding spies on a treasure hunt.
It’s Mummies day! Come along to Hoxton Street Monster Supplies on Saturday 9th of March for a day in celebration of the Mummy!
