Herne Hill Solidarity Fund is live!
The Herne Hill Solidarity Fund which grew out of the Herne Hill Mutual Aid Group is a small money pot created for and by the community to support anyone in SE24 in financial difficulty.
The much loved Half Moon Montessori Nursery has been hit very hard by Coronavirus.
With huge uncertainty over income and numbers of children attending next year, combined with unexpected costs required to adapt the nursery to meet government guidelines, these are difficult times and the future is looking very unsure. Very sadly, staff cuts have already been made.
Hi there lovely locals,
I have set up a raffle (tickets £2.50 each) to help fundraise for the owner of Nimble Arts (whose business has suffered under lockdown - they get no government support) and the London Air Ambulance charity.
If you would consider buying a ticket and sharing with neighbours and friends I would be very grateful.
The Forum is pleased to share some news from Brixton and Norwood Foodbank, including a new intiative to encourage Foodbank users to book a 'call back' from a volunteer, to take the place of face-to-face chat which has been limited in the last few months.
Brixton’s annual street art fair is going ‘virtual’ this year due to the impracticality of holding a socially distanced event, but don’t worry we plan to be back at our usual venue in beautiful tree lined Josephine Avenue next year. Meantime, please support our exhibitors this year by viewing their galleries and invest in some art.
