Ain’t no party like a ‘Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You’ Christmas party

Ho ho ho.  Welcome to a special Christmas party edition of Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You.  ‘What’s special about it?’ I hear you ask.  Well, there’s a picture of a dog in a Santa outfit below and if you click this link you’ll have an appropriate soundtrack to carry on reading. Welcome to the online equivalent of Lapland.

It's a Christmas Dog

Come on in, pass round the egg nog and let’s get this party started…

  • Every Christmas needs a miracle and social entrepreneur Elisicia Moore has grabbed the reindeer by the horns and opened ‘The Petit Miracles Hub‘, a shopping centre in West London which supports local, independent businesses. Perfect for some last minute Christmas shopping.


  • Already time for another drink? This time I’m going to make you a Kogel Mogel (hot egg nog) for which I need some honey.  Luckily SSE Fellow Barnaby Shaw is on hand with his social enterprise Bee Urban to provide some.


  • Uh-oh.  Too much egg nog.  People are getting a little bit lairy and it looks like an argument is breaking out.  It’s a sophisticated party though so it’s more of an intellectual debate about the direction of the social economy


  • Argument over, and now that everyone has calmed down its time for a game.  I know- why not take part in this fun online quiz?  You could even win a prize!  (It’s not a quiz, it’s actually our Social Entrepreneurs Training Survey.  At least 6500 people who receive this email haven’t filled it in yet!  Tut tut).


  • Completed the quiz?  Super, now it’s time for us to hand out some presents.  If you live in Devon, we’ve got the gift just for you: it’s our free Rural Devon Social Entrepreneurs Programme.  It’s a (Christmas) cracker!





Have a good Christmas all!  The next edition will be a roundup of the most popular links of the year, but seeing as next Friday is Boxing Day and I’ll be at Oxford United v Shrewsbury it might not come out until Monday 29th…
