Story

Fork out to help out

This year has been a tough one for pretty much everyone, however lockdown has had a terrible effect on those who have lost jobs, have low or no income and can't get out. There is a very real crisis in that many people can't put food on the table, or have access to the bare essentials - all this in London, one of the wealthiest cities on earth. The Albrighton Centre based in Southwark, SE London, has been working tirelessly for the last three and half years to help people in need, Monday to Friday - and now the problem is becoming increasingly acute due to the covid 19 pandemic. For example' there are communities in SE London who came here on working visas and have no access to any social services or benefits. Inevitably they have lost their jobs and are struggling to make ends meet - the Albrighton Centre is a lifeline.

During lockdown and while on furlough from her job my daughter volunteered at the food bank and has enthusiastically shone a light on the fantastic work they do for the community in Southwark. I had to help.

At about the same time I decided to photograph and share my lunches on instagram, more tongue in cheek than any series foodie material. As it developed so did my idea of bringing all the images together in a book, then I had the bright idea to help raise funds for the Albrighton Centre Community Fridge.

I have invested in a print run of 200 copies so far of #lockdownlunch and I will send a copy to everyone who donates £10+ to help me reach my proposed target.

For many of you this isn't a local cause, so hopefully the lure of my beautifully produced book (thanks to Maria and Raman) will help make giving and helping even more of a pleasure.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

(to get your book drop me an email with your address after you have donated to patrickmills1963@gmail.com)

I have lived in Peckham for 21 years, I work in advertising and am a photographer (to date, though, not a food photographer). I have made a book of my lunches in May and June - #lockdownlunch, which I am giving away in exchange for donations, ideally in excess of a tenner.
