We have made the decision to offer takeaway meals from Monday 23rd March 2020. These will be served from the kitchen hatch. There will be a limited choice of meal, and hot drinks available. Subject to other donations, we will also give out fresh fruit and vegetables, sandwiches and other perishable items that we have been given. This service will continue for as long as we are able to offer it.
We are extremely grateful to all those individuals and organisations who have been providing us with donations, both in kind and financially. These are enabling us to continue our work with the homeless and those most vulnerable in our community.
Our facebook and twitter will have regular updates.
We are really pleased that Becky Mursell was lucky enough to get a ballot place in this year’s London Marathon and has chosen to run in support of Ace of Clubs.
Becky came across our work through James Hopkirk’s story of Mark http://www.southlondonstories.com/mark, which she says really touched her and she felt it brought to life the importance of our work.
Becky has set up a virgin giving page https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=BeckyMursell&pageUrl=1 and all donations will go towards the work that we do and will be much appreciated.
To mark World Homeless Day we bring you a very special story about a former Ace of Clubs client. Over the last two years, photojournalist James Hopkirk has been working with Mark, who we supported over a number of years and who is thankfully now doing really well.
James and Mark have published a very honest, unflinching and moving photo story that recounts some of Mark’s experiences of rough sleeping and addiction. It has given Mark a chance to have his voice heard, and we hope it will help to challenge some of the preconceptions people have of homelessness. Please do read and share it if you can.
The story is part of James’ ongoing South London Stories project. We’ve been working with James for several years now, and last year he held the first South London Stories exhibition here at Ace of Clubs. We look forward to continuing to work with him as he publishes more stories that highlight aspects of life in London that so many people simply never see.
Thanks to our partnership with Morley College, we are delighted to be offering another Introduction to Computer Skills course starting at Ace of Clubs on 20th September 2019.
