On Thursday 5th September Deptford First will officially launch our brand-new Community Chest Fund at Deptford Town Hall.
Cuts to local government funding have taken a massive toll on our community, placing many people in financial hardship. Deptford First hopes to alleviate some of that hardship by working with our partner organisations to provide small grants to those who cannot access help elsewhere.
Join us to hear from our trustees, our partners and some of the people we have already helped. If that’s not enough to tempt you along, there will also be food and drink (as well as the obligatory raffle!) and a chance to network with other local organisations.
Please register via our Eventbrite page: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/deptford-first-community-chest-fund-launch-tickets
We are asking attendees for a small donation of £2 per person (or more if you would like) towards the Community Chest Fund.
We have tried to invite as many local organisations as possible, but please feel free to share this with your networks.
I hope to see you there.
Chair of Deptford First & MP for Lewisham Deptford
