Despite working 3 busy jobs and always being on her feet, my mum somehow finds the time and energy to make sure everybody around her is happy. She has really helped me the past year as I have struggled on and off with my mental health- she always makes me feel special even on my worst days. I want her to be reminded that she is very special too

Fog stopped me getting home last week for Mum’s 50th; want her to know that if I’m not there, I am always thinking of her!

Katie Stark

My mum is the best. My boyfriend has lost his adopted mum (auntie) he had no where to live as the house was council. No money or income he was left with nothing. My mum is the best because she has a huge heart and took him in even with 3 kids of her own and only a sofa on the livingroom she also paid for him and still is my mum just lost her dad and she is being super strong I want her to know how much I love her and how proud I am to have a mum as wonderful as her xxxx

 

We all know it can be a little daunting when you move into your first home. Our houses are designed to give you room, and plenty of it, because we appreciate that having your own space is important, but so is sharing it with the right people. Sometimes you need to reach out beyond your immediate friendship group and enter a new community.

Most of our homes cater for 6 people, but we welcome you if you’re in a smaller group or want to strike out on your own. 

If you’re looking to find some great flatmates feel free to post on our Facebook page, or tweet us and we will match you up with other groups / individuals. We encourage you to meet up and go for a drink or two and see how you get on. We know it can take time to find the right people. If we do our job right, which we usually do, then you could end up with friends for life.

Woo Easter!

We like to spoil our tenants so we’ve sent everyone a tasty egg to nibble on for this festive period.

SS Easter Card v1-2

But we don’t want you to eat it straight away. Instead, go on an adventure with your little chocolate buddy take some snaps and send them to @sweetspothomes or facebook.com/sweetspothomes. The one which makes us laugh the most gets £20 cash. You buy more eggs with that and start a little egg family. Or get a couple of bottles of wine…or go to a gig. Whatever, just take pictures so we can laugh at you.

DEADLINE 1st May

Following words by Lucy Goldbart

This Sunday 23rd March, Nottingham Jewish Society is holding our annual charity ball, and we’ve chosen two incredibly worthy charities to support.

Zichron Menachem is the Israeli charity for the support of children with cancer and their families. It offers support from the moment a child has been diagnosed with cancer and provides care for children whose parents are suffering from cancer. It is the first and only Israeli day care centre for education and rehabilitation for children with cancer.

Great Ormond Street Hospital is the world leading hospital in child healthcare offering excellent medical advice and treatment to children with serious and life threatening illnesses. We hope to raise money to aid in the £45million redevelopment scheme in the rebuilding and modernisation of wards. We hope that our money can help facilitate the increase of space for patients and the ability to improve patient care.

Apart from ticket sales and sponsorship, there will also be an opportunity to contribute further to these great charities: We’re holding a raffle during the night, with unbelievable prizes to be won including hotel stays, hampers, paintballing trips and many more… So don’t forget to bring your wallets along!

Tickets cost £40 and guests will enjoy a delicious three-course kosher meal, copious amounts of free alcohol, and great entertainment. It’s a brilliant opportunity to dress up and throw a party for a great cause, and being one of the largest (and obviously the best!) JSoc in the country, it’s sure to be an amazing night!

Hope to see you all there!

Why?

Who wants to give money to PR companies? Not us. We figure that the people who could benefit most from £200 cash are you guys. Whether you’re already completely perfect and live in a SweetSpot home or out there in the world of far inferior houses not made by us, we invite you to take part.

About SweetSpot:

SweetSpot started with a simple thought: students deserve better places to live. The idea was to create houses for friends to learn how to make a home together, because long corridors and anonymous doors don’t make for good communities.

What do I do?

It’s a simple process:

1. Refer a friend
2. They visit a house and decide they want it
3. When they put their holding deposit down get them to refer your name

It’s as easy as that – once your friend takes a home with us, they will pass on your details and we’ll send you £200 to do with as you please, you can even split it with them if you fancy.

Promote our homes on twitter, facebook and to your friends.

Maths:

Not our favourite subject but here goes: if you promote, yell about and spread the word enough to rent out, say 5 of our properties, you’ll get £1000 in your pocket!

Questions:

Ping us on twitter or facebook or email ana@sweetspot.com
