We recently held our second annual Pitch Night for the latest cohort for our Changemakers programme.
Since 2019, we have been running the Changemakers programme annually while providing support to people in Lewisham, helping them develop their social enterprises and small businesses from an idea into something tangible.
Each year, the programme culminates in a Pitch Night which is an opportunity for a group of Changemakers to promote their projects and pitch for support from Lewisham Homes staff and partner contractors, alongside organisations like Lewisham Local.
This year we held our Pitch Night remotely due to Covid restrictions, and over 20 people joined to watch the Changemakers and offer support.
The event was a success with a whole range of offers of support being made to the Changemakers, ranging from financial to free IT equipment.
We’d like to congratulate all the Changemakers who took part in the Pitch Night.
