Join the Centenary Refugee Rally!

Featuring keynote speaker Lord Alf Dubs, child refugee campaigner and himself a wartime refugee.

Just over 100 years ago, on 17 October 1914, hundreds of residents attended a meeting on Wimbledon Common called by the Wimbledon and Merton Refugee Fund.

Its purpose was to help Belgian refugees fleeing their country at the start of World War 1.

Come and show how much Merton residents still care about refugees 100 years on from the original rally!

When: 6:30pm, Friday 24 June

Where: Rushmere Pond, Wimbledon Common
