The sheer amount of donations the centre is receiving is overwhelming, as well as the huge numbers of people from all backgrounds who are coming to get stuck in. Everyone is pulling together to work as quickly and efficiently as possible to try and sort everything out and get it back out the door. What an amazing sense of community at such a difficult time. They will definitely need as much help as they can get so check out the times and get down there if you can! There's a cloakroom, toilets, hot and cold food, and a variety of drinks to keep you going.
Wandsworth Welcomes Refugees has had an amazing response to the call for donations for Ukrainian refugees displaced by the conflict. Volunteers are now urgently needed to help sort through the donations. If you’re able to help, please visit the White Eagle Club at any of the times listed below and speak to one of the volunteers on duty:

Great running from everyone on a sunny Saturday! As customary, we got in a group photo too.
After a parkrun, the best part is getting a coffee (and pastry). Making our way to Herne Hill for a coffee before making our way back to Brockwell to sit, chat and drink our coffees. We even had an innocent looking dog come and say more than "Hello". 👀🐕
