Saturday 16th March
We asked you to come out and support Lewisham Hospital if you, your children, your grandchildren, your brother or sister was born in Lewisham and YOU CAME. Sadly the weather was atrocious but around 500 of you and more braved the pouring rain to link hands and listen to songs and speeches in LadywellFields.

Thanks to all who helped on the day – particularly Question Musiq, Charles Bailey, opera singer Kristina, Strawberry Thieves and Nick Jeffrey, the Woody Guthrie singer. Thanks to all our speakers: Dr Tina Sajjanhar, paediatrician and head of Children’s emergency medicine, midwife , Steve Turner from Unite, and Louise Irvine, SLH campaign chair. Thanks to all those who helped with the photography, photo booths and banners. Our new badges and shopping bags went fast. Sales of signed copies of the new Save Lewisham A&E rap CD were very successful. All money goes to the Save Lewisham Hospital campaign – click here to go download.

There is a facebook group for people born in lewisham, who have given birth in Lewisham or are about to give birth in Lewisham. They are embarking on a mission to provide a voice for these people who fear the hospital being damaged. And, more to the point, they are going to make a song about how they feel.
