Comedian Tom Allen hosting a live online quiz to raise money for South East London’s St Christopher’s Hospice

Tomorrow night – 7.30pm on 22 May – local comedian, and Channel Four’s Bake Off: The Professionals presenter, Tom Allen will host a live online event to raise funds for St Christopher’s Hospice, which supports around 1,200 people every day across South East London. The ‘Fun Time Quiz Time with Tom Allen’ event can be joined on Facebook Live and YouTube Live, details can be found at In return for entertaining people directly in their own front rooms during lockdown, Tom is asking for donations to the hospice, however big or small. Currently, all of St Christopher’s 26 charity shops are shut and the hospice has had to cancel fundraising events and sponsored activities. This means a huge shortfall in its fundraising income since the outbreak of Covid-19, but tomorrow night the hospice hopes that its community will back its Emergency Appeal and help keep the hospice caring for those most in need. Supporters can text the word ‘HOSPICE’ to 70500 to donate £5 to the hospice’s Emergency Appeal.

Lockdown Update

Many local businesses have had to adapt to life under the Covid-19 lockdown.  So many businesses got in touch with us at SE Mags to tell us how they have adapted their business to cope. Jerk Off BBQ At Jerk Off BBQ we love to host events and parties. We’ve been planning a launch for our new site but due to the Government lockdown we’ve been unable to celebrate when we’d wanted to, it a real shame not to see our supportive customers and community. However, we believe in positivity and great food, so as cooks we are always ready and willing to adapt and have done this by going fully online. We’re delivering locally to some lovely regulars from our pop ups and markets, as well as gaining a great new local following! Whilst we are in a pandemic the only thing we can do is stay safe and take all the recommended government guidelines seriously, which is why we operate a contact-free curb-side delivery system with all payments made online. Other than that, why not be …

SoLo Craft Fair goes Online

SoLo Craft Fair normally runs craft markets in South London, and this Saturday was going to be Dulwich Spring Market, one of three huge markets we have in St. Barnabas Parish Hall throughout the year. The event has over 60 makers and designers showcasing their wares. When Covid-19 struck, we of course had to cancel this along with our other events. This meant cutting off the income source of hundreds of local small creative businesses. This is where the idea of the Virtual Craft Market came in. We thought of the idea on a Thursday 19th March, with the idea of the first Market taking place on our Instagram Stories that following Saturday. The concept spread so quickly within these two days that we had over 200 makers take part in the first market from all over the world! The main focus of the market was to draw attention to these small businesses that would sadly suffer over the next few months. There was such a great response, it brought these makers and artists exposure and many …
