We hope you have managed a serene holiday season and started 2017 well.
There are a couple of events lined up for this year, details of which will be circulated as soon as the dates are finalised. Do attend the monthly meeting next Monday the 16th if you wish to find out more and could contribute to some plannings. It's happening as usual at LARC from 6:30 pm.
Many of you might already be aware of the sad and sudden passing of the extraordinary Robert Dellar last month. Robert was one of the founders of Mad Pride and the Mental Health Resistance Network, among endless other involvement in the mental health and social fields, resulting a great worker and ispirational individual.
The service of remembrance will be held Tuesday 24th January 2017 12.15pm at Honor Oak Crematorium Camberwell New Cemetery, Brockley Way Entrance, London, SE4 2LW
From 2.15pm there will be music, food and an open mic for stories celebrating Robert's life at The Ivy House, 40 Stuart Road, London, SE15 3BE. Please bring photos, texts, posters, zines, records and memories to share.
A crowdfund has been set up in order to help covering for some of the funeral and wake costs https://www.youcaring.com/therobertdellarmemorialwakeparty-727871. In place of flowers, Robert would have preferred donations to his favoured charities, Mental Health Resistance Network, Kindred Minds and The Field. Sending our condolences to his partner Shirley Pearson and all Robert's friends and family.
