The Livesey Ward Big Lunch was as big as ever this year with around 500 revellers enjoying the party.

The now renowned community event attracts large crowds every year so Nicholas Okwulu, who leads the charity People Empowering People, has now roped in other local organisations to lend a hand.

“The Big Lunch has brought the community together and has now become a look-forward-to event, as it gets bigger we have been to get local organisations such as Lloyds Bank Camberwell who supplied their staff to come and help out,” he said.

“It’s been good at bringing out the diversity of our area in Peckham, creating collaborations, friends and knowing what’s happening in the area. It’s about bringing people together,” added the community champion who has recently been awarded the freedom of Camberwell.

Nicholas also wished to thank Wandle Housing, Hyde Housing, L&Q Housing, Diabetes UK, Mears, Peckham Park Baptist Church, Christ church SureStart and Southwark Council and the Safer Neighbourhood Team together with Community support wardens, Leyton Square Adventure Playground, and JB’s Soulfood for their contribution to the free family festival.
