Some of the runners who were recruited by the Mayor of Southwark take part in the marathon for SDCAS came to the centre this week - for lunch and a congratulatory certificate. Check out their legs. It was great to meet them all, and thank them in person. Some had even run two marathons - they got two servings at lunch. This is Tom, Tesni, the Mayor and Mayoress, James and Luca, and between them they raised over £10,000 which will really help us climb back to a normal level of service after the lockdown.
On Remembrance Sunday, Mayor Barry Hargrove has invited SDCAS to participate in the commemorative event held at Southwark War Memorial on Walworth Road. Our client Sayeda will be reading a poem to mark the occasion, at 10:50 am. We’re proud of her and of our association with the Mayor throughout this year. Please spare a moment to remember all those who have lost their lives and in conflicts all over the world.
This week at the Peckham Levels, something positive and a sign of life from the Penally MOD facility that houses asylum seekers in Wales. It’s an exhibition of artwork done by residents there, and it promises to be an insight of rare intimacy into the thoughts and dreams of people who are too often voiceless. Do go along if you can.
