A big thank you for the Hilton Staff who organised a wonderful lunch for our over 50s in Southwark last Thursday.
We had the exceptional participation of 50 adults aged over 50 years living and taking in part into to community groups in Southwark from Creation Trust, ATD Fourth World, Time and Talents, Hourbank, Stones End day centre and Communities Living Well.
ATD Fourth World, a human rights-based, anti-poverty organisation with more than 40 years’ experience of working to find solutions to eradicate extreme poverty in the UK, came over with participants of The Roles We Play: Recognising the Contribution of People in Poverty as they wanted to thank the Hilton Docklands Riverside Hotel with songs and poems! First Seamus with a traditional Irish Christmas song and followed by Georgina leading on her Christmas version of Dona Maria.
And to close the lunch, the Hilton organised a raffle, and we had the delight to see Jocelyn winning the Christmas hamper full of goodies to treat herself and family on Christmas eve.
The Roles We Play: Recognising the Contribution of People in Poverty; a full-colour publication, exhibition and multi-media project published by ATD Fourth World in partnership with London-based photographer and artist Eva Sajovic. Seamus and Georgina are part of the project and each have their own page on the site and the in the book (http://therolesweplay.co.uk/Seamus and http://therolesweplay.co.uk/Georgina ).
