On Tuesday evening 30 October Community Links celebrated its 30 year anniversary on the top floor of City Hall The work of Community Links is astonishing, with 50,000 people locally being helped by the Community Centre each year.
The highlight of the evening, were the presentations by Nicole Tofts, Malcolm N'Diaye, Terry Hawkins and Arpeeta Barua, all children and young people who described their personal experiences of being involved with Community Links. And they each pitched their project ideas, including a band and a football team. . . They were absolutely brilliant!!!
David Robinson, the founder of CL, is now Senior Advisor is the founder of the movement We Are What We Do. David Robinson has collaborated with Gordon Brown on the Prime Ministers new book “Britain’s Everyday Heroes” and is to lead the recently announced Prime Ministers Council on Social Action. Something is bound to go right now!!
Happy Birthday to Community Links and to all the great people who work there!
