We bet you’ve heard about our charitable cluster project called Anna Pomogayet (“Anne Gives Aid”). If you haven’t, we’re going to tell you all about it, and that’s for a reason – starting November 10, our cluster works on a daily basis!
Two years ago, we were given a basement space on Vasilyevsky Island, St. Petersburg. No doubt, we needed to use the facility to the maximum and for charity. We renovated it, fitted out the rooms, involved volunteers and partners. Over time, the bleak basement brightened up and got to look nice, our activity schedules filled with music concerts, master classes, and interest club meetings, and the cluster itself began to attract new visitors. We struck up friendships with foundations and organizations such as Anton tut ryadom, Dobrodely Peterburga, St. Basil the Great Center, Put neprost, and many others. We won a presidential grant and use the money to buy groceries and deliver them to the needy.
As we said, the cluster is starting to work daily, following all the necessary sanitary standards. Now Anna Pomogayet is open from 4 pm to 10 pm Tuesdays to Fridays and from 12 noon to 10 pm weekends. What do you do at the cluster? Just about anything! As you run down Repin Street, stop by to have some good coffee, do some work, play foosball, tabletop games or a video game, read or simply take a break from the daily bustle. Revenues are invested in charity and cluster support. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
Note our address: ulitsa Repina 10, St. Petersburg.
