Nunhead’s Elvis was so delighted to appear in last week’s Southwark News that he’s been taking his copy on tour.

The Lock ‘n’ Roll King has been entertaining residents from Buchan Road TRA every Thursday during Clap for Carers.

He’s now taking requests and collecting for Nunhead Knocks – with all funds going directly to the community group’s support for vulnerable people during the COVID-19 crisis.

Last week he was performing in nearby Gordon Road and raised £89.45.

 

Elsewhere Southwark’s community spirit has also been out in full force.

On week six of the lockdown, Brunswick Park Primary is still open for children whose parents are keyworker who are missing their other friends.

As well as thanking the NHS and other frontline workers, they’ve put up this sweet message outside the school on Picton Street.

This week we’ve also heard from Sydenham Hill TRA, who set up their own emergency hotline for residents.
They are one of the TRAs to do a huge printing run and leaflet drop their neighbourhood before the full lockdown began.
The TRA has also been in touch with supermarkets locally to make sure residents are getting the food they need, as well as helping with Universal Credit applications, rent arrears and other practical and financial support.
The estate has also been sharing messages of support for essential workers and providing plenty of activities for young people to enjoy.
