Save KGH A&E March & Rally: 18 March 2017 – Funds needed

There will be a Save King George A&E March and Rally next year on Saturday 18 March 2017. The march will assemble at the field by Perth Road in Valentines Park at 1:30pm, departing at 2:00pm to walk to Redbridge Town Hall for a Rally in the main hall at 3:00pm. The long term weather forecast is for a bright and sunny spring day.

Speakers will include:
  • Cllr Jas Athwal, Leader of Redbridge Council
  • Keith Prince, Greater London Assembly Member for Redbridge and Havering
  • Wes Streeting, MP for Ilford North
The cost of hiring the main hall is £2,052 and the campaign, or rather Andy Walker, is crowdfunding to cover this cost.

Earlier this year there was a Momentum meeting held there with John McDonnell as one of the speakers. The cost of hiring the hall was more than covered by a collection at the event itself but the organisers had shelled out the money beforehand. If we don’t come up with the cash then it seems it will fall entirely on the shoulders of stalwart campaigner Andy Walker, so pop over to the crowdfunding page and please give whatever you can afford in these austere times. Every little helps. Barkingside 21 has pledged £100.
