Labour Councillors support local charities
Penge has always been a hive of charitable activity, and there’s plenty going on right now. Over the summer, Bromley pupils were working with local care homes, charities, and vulnerable people, to raise awareness and money as part of the National Citizenship
Social Action Challenge. One team worked with the Kentwood Centre in Penge, raising
funding for art and craft materials, and helping change the way society views disabilities. Councillor Kevin Brooks lent support by serving on the Challenges panel.
Penge’s Labour Councillors are also involved in other initiatives, including the monthly
‘community lunch’ at Melvin Hall, for residents who need companionship or support. They plan to cater for thirty at the next lunch, and hope to increase the numbers as volunteer numbers and resources grow. The lunches are funded by local donations.
