St John’s Community Project
In early summer of 2018 Lambeth Councillor and businessman Kevin Craig stepped in to save a vital community project from overnight closure. St John’s Community Project serves vulnerably elderly people in and around the Stockwell area including many on the Lambeth Council Estate where Kevin grew up. It was about to be shut down due to lack of funds. Kevin was informed about the situation by a prominent local Councillor - Councillor Tina Valcarcel and he stepped in with a donation of over £10,000. This is the story of what happened and why.
