Tottenham MP David Lammy surprised us a few weeks ago when we received this letter informing us that we were one of the projects covering Tottenham who will get a share of the proceeds of his book, “Out Of The Ashes: Britian After The Riots”.
Well the cheque didn’t bounce so it is safe to announce this is not a prank!
We were are all really happy to be recognised by Mr Lammy in this way and are grateful for the support he has given us from day one of our project.
Mr Lammy has said we can spend the money how we feel fit to continue our work, but rather than put in a central pot we will be ringfencing it and doing a specific project in the next 6 months.
Thank you again Mr Lammy!
