Talented chef cooking for a charity close to her heart

Nima Owino

A popular West African chef hailed one “to look out for” by the Guardian, will be cooking up a storm at this week’s Street Child Summer Party.

Nima Owino, who runs the Nim’s Din Supper Club, will be serving up a two-course meal to revellers at the Pillbox Kitchen in Bethnal Green on Thursday June 28. (Info/ tickets: www.street-child.co.uk/sl-summer-party)

The event is a chance to learn more about the Sierra Leone Marathon and the projects it funds, to meet past runners, see photos and film of this year’s event and to sign up for next year.

Street Child, which builds schools and promotes education in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria and Nepal, is a charity particularly close to Nima’s heart. Raised in London, her family come from Sierra Leone and Liberia and she comes from a long line of educators.
