Community pulls together, your help askedTagged as: demo2011 social_struggles solidarity workers_struggles
Tottenham Green Leisure Centre has become a community drop in centre for people who lost everything they have during Saturday night's riots. Volunteers are donating clothes and food to those who need them.
Individuals there include those made homeless by the rioters and those robbed in the streets during the riots. They currently need small toys and games for the children. Clothes for adults and children (some families have lost literely everything and have only the clothes they were wearing. Nappies for babies are also welcome.
This is nothing to do with the council but is a community initative by local people for the local people.
