On 7th October we welcomed Bell Ribeiro-Addy, MP for Streatham and Poetess Jess to 47 Tooting Bec Gardens where Residents and staff gathered to celebrate Black History Month. Bell told the crowd about her life growing up in Brixton and Poetess Jess performed. We even had a fashion show with t-shirt designs made by Residents and a special Black History Monty quiz!

A fabulous feast was cooked by Residents and staff which included rice and beans, jerk chicken, plantains and much more. Thanks to Croydon Supplementary Education Project for providing decorations for the event and books for the quiz winners, Afrodesigns for gifting us beautiful fabric and Pasimm Printers And Embroiders for the t-shirts our men designed.
