There’s always lots going on at Moon on the Water and recently it played host to the second “Pride of Plate” fundraising event organised by Mica Armstrong. Mica is a youth leader supported through the VANEL IGNITE programme and she ran Pride of Plate events back in October 2017 and again early in March.
Pride of Plate was a vegan cake competition raising money for charities close to Mica’s heart. Mica is also a youth ambassador for Groundwork UK, and is running a new project – Project V – supporting young people suffering sexual abuse, and these public cake events allowed Mica to raise the profile of these causes.
Moon on the Water is of course a Vegan café so “Pride of Plate” fits in neatly with the ethos. Mica helps out at Moon on the Water and is part of their growing team and you can look out for another “Pride of Plate” taking place later in the year.
