Sadiq is inviting residents to a community coffee morning that will bring together more than twenty local and national health and well-being organisations in one place.
The free event will take place on Friday 24th October, from 10:30am to 1pm at Mushkil Aasaan Community Centre, 220-222 Upper Tooting Road, London, SW17 7EW (next door to Nandos).
Both Sadiq and the Mayor of Wandsworth, Cllr Stuart Thom, will be there to welcome local residents as they visit stalls run by a variety of organisations for information about the type of care and services they provide, over a cup of tea with their neighbours. Wandsworth Borough Commander Chief Supt Intendant Richard Smith and St George’s CEO will also be present.
Attendees will benefit from a range of information, from community safety advice from the local police, health advice from the team at our own St George’s Hospital, free health checks from the Wandsworth Healthy Living team and free blood pressure checks from Blood Pressure UK and much more!
Other confirmed organisations attending include:
- Wandsworth Age UK
- Furzedown Project
- MacMillan Cancer Support
- South West London Law Centre
- Wandsworth Council
- Alzheimer’s Society
If you would like to come along, or have any questions regarding the event, please contact Sadiq’s office on 0207 219 5820 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

“Whether you live in Tooting, Balham, Furzedown or Earlsfield, you are welcome to come along to what I am sure will be an informative and positive event.
“My coffee morning has now become an annual event, and every year local residents tell me how useful they have found it – whether it is picking up tips on how to keep their house safe, stepping aboard the Healthy Living Bus for a free health check, or speaking to local councillors about the support they can provide. I look forward to seeing you there.”
