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.

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.
