Kennington Association Bazaar (and Million Women Rise march)

Kennington Association Bazaar (11am - 1pm, St Anselm's Church Hall
Please see yesterday's post on the Kennington Association blog for advanced notice of one of their fundraising bazaars on Saturday. The bazaar will be held from 11:00 to 13:00 on the 6th March at St Anselm’s Church Hall.

If you have items that you want to give away to raise funds for the Kennington Association (for local projects), you'll need to bring the items to the Church Hall on Friday evening from 18:00-20:00 or before the bazaar begins on the Saturday itself.  If you currently have a house full of saleable clutter, the Kennington Association is a worthwhile cause (their costs are low and they are entirely staffed by volunteers) and since there are no charity shops in Kennington, it's a greener option than driving it all to Walworth Road.

Million Women Rise March (Meet 12pm, Park Lane)
Somewhat off topic (and non-SE11), I know, but it's the third (I think) Million Women Rise march on Saturday.  The march is a gathering of diverse individual women, and their representatives from the Voluntary/Community sector. It's a demonstration against continued male violence enacted against women worldwide. The march is open to women and children only.

The crowd attending the march has been growing in size and strength from year to year, but it's nowhere near the size it should be. Male violence against women is a matter that I feel needs to be denounced strongly, and having marched for the last two years, I'll be going this year too. I would ask you to consider attending for women who are unable to speak out.  If you had considered attending, but want somebody to accompany you, please drop me an email on: and we can arrange something.
