The Peckham Settlement has reluctantly accepted the resignation of Clare Sharpen who served on the Executive Committee for three years.
She brought the organisation clarity and skills that assisted its passage through to its new manifestation and active grant-making.
16th June 2016 saw the Re-Launch of The Peckham Settlement as celebrated at Peckham Library in one of its spacey pods.
In attendance were Deputy Mayor Charlie Smith and his wife, Cllrs Barrie Hargove, Michael Situ and Sunil Chopra, representatives of HOurBank, Cambridge House, Pecan, and other local organisations.
A short presentation was made encouraging local organisations to apply for funding from The Peckham Settlement.
A moment’s silence was also held for Jo Cox MP
