When Maths and Geography teacher Mr Tom Rose volunteered at the Centre one Christmas, he was very moved by the experience. It inspired him to talk to his school, Dulwich Prep, about the possibility of choosing the Centre as their Advent charity. At assembly one morning, Mr Rose spoke about his Christmas volunteering to launch their fundraiser: Make your own Christmas jumper, dress up for £1 day’. Dulwich Prep went on to raise £491 for the Centre. Thank you Dulwich Prep!

In February 2013, another group of Dulwich Prep students came to help out. Zac, James, Theo, Joshua, William, Josiah, Jesse, Felix and Ubaid were fantastic. They rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in with our ESOL department. In our family centre, they came across some dressing up clothes and put on an impromptu musical show for the children.
It was absolutely brilliant, and Sue, who works in our family centre, said that it was wonderful for the children to meet such positive role models. She also said that she’d never heard so much laughter.
We’d like to thank Dulwich Prep for being so generous with their time.
