On Friday 22 June the Streatham Drop-in Centre is hosting a food-filled fundraiser as part of the Streatham Food Festival.

A selection of Eritrean, Ethiopian and world cuisine, with both vegetarian and meat options, will be on offer and the money raised from donations will go towards activities for children over the summer.

The centre, which has been open for 16 years, provides a range of practical needs-led services and activities for asylum seekers and refugees in the Streatham area.  Their services include drop in sessions offering general, health and legal advice, English language classes and a homework club for children on Saturday mornings. This Saturday [02 June] they took a group of young people to Streatham Community Centre Garden to learn about nature and plant their own flowers.

This will be the fourth year the centre has held the World Cuisine event in order to raise money for the charity.

Brian McCarthy, the centre’s coordinator said: “We’re really excited to host this event again this year. Last year we hosted over 70 people, and the funds raised paid for a children’s trip to the seaside.

“The food is always incredible and it’s great to see both people who use our service getting involved and sharing their cultures, as well as people completely new to the service just coming to find out more about what we do here.

“Our vision is a community in which all asylum seekers and refugees are welcomed, valued and able to participate fully in society. All are welcome, and people are able to walk in on the night.”

The event starts at 7pm on 22 June, at the Streatham Drop-in Centre, on 2 Mitcham Lane (next door to English Martyrs Church).

As part of our vision to enable asylum seekers and refugees to feel welcomed, valued and able to participate fully in society, this summer we are hoping to send a group of around 40 refugee children and their families on a day trip to the seaside at West Wittering beach near Portsmouth. We are hoping to raise £2000 to hire transport for the day and have a picnic...

Thanks Streatham!

We raised over £700 at our Streatham Food Festival event this year, all of which will go to boosting much-needed services in the area.

We had a fantastic night raising awareness about the work of the centre and sharing food cooked by our users.

We even had a visit from MP Chuka Umunna, who spoke movingly of the need to support those in greatest need.
