Nunhead Knocks is winding down, but you can still support our community!
In early March 2020, a group of neighbours came together to support our wider community throughout the pandemic. What started modestly with two Gmail accounts and a Wordpress blog posted on the local Facebook Group, Nunhead Rock; became an inspiring collaboration between hundreds of people, local businesses and community groups.
The connections 🤝, love ❤️ and support that we have all built since COVID hit us has been inspiring and the true indicator of what a wonderful community we have in our wonderful pocket of London. Thank you to each and every one of you.
We're now winding down Nunhead Knocks and handing back to the amazing existing community organisations that provide support all year round. We urge you to keep supporting all our friends and partners however you can, with time or money or donations. Here are some local organisations to support.
The website will remain mainly to help signpost people to other services, but the phone line will be closing and the indefatigable Peter has agreed to keep monitoring emails and we’ll keep the NK WA groups so we can still help anyone who needs us.We will continue to help with our donation stations as long as we have volunteers to do so.
There are local and national groups that are here to support you. Many are ran by volunteers who, like Nunhead Knocks, set up in response to COVID-19, others are well established. Whether you can donate your time, cash or skills or you need a friendly helping hand, do get in touch.
