Crowdfund Lambeth: Lambeth Council support for communities during COVID-19 pandemic

From The Integrate Agency CIC:

During this time of crisis, Lambeth Council is working to ensure that our most vulnerable communities have the help they need.

Rainbow Norwood

Springing up all over Norwood are rainbow pictures in the front windows of people's houses. It's thought that the rainbow trend started in Italy, but has rapidly caught on in other countries including the US, Canada, Spain and now the UK. Rainbow pictures are a brilliant and simple way to create some positivity and cheer as we all fight the spread of Coronavirus together. Why not make your own? #rainbownorwood
