Brilliant work going on at the Venture Community Association that we help fund and visited recently. Children can play safely every day after school, get something hot to eat and receive lots of much needed support from the incredibly dedicated staff – led by Naami (centre of pic.)

Our Chief Executive, Laurence Guinness, spoke at their AGM following the visit and said “It’s vital that children from so many different cultures can play safely together and receive much needed support otherwise London would not be the great capital city that it is.”

Like lots of small projects across London they’re struggling to meet the demand with ever decreasing resources. We need more like this, not less. Well done the Venture team – we love you!
