Fundraiser for Madeira this Sunday 7th March 7pm

Please come and support our Portuguese speaking communities
Following the tragedy in Madeira in which over 40 people died and many more lost their homes Lambeth has been working with the Portuguese Ambassador, Antonio Santana Carlos and the Portuguese Community Councillors in the UK, to stage an event to raise money for those affected. Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL) have kindly donated use of the sports hall at Brixton Rec plus staff for the evening to the cause. This will go directly to Madeira, but of course we have a lot of residents here whose families, friends and communities on the island have been seriously affected.

We are holding an evening with entertainments and dinner – all for a donation of £10 (or more if you wish). Every penny raised will go the Madeiran relief fund. The event is being organised by Labour's Cabinet Member for Culture and Communities, Cllr Rachel Heywood - for more details, please email

Date: Sunday 7th March 2010
Time: 7pm
Venue: Brixton Recreational Centre
