Save Lewisham Hospital events and legal challenge


Friday 14 – Saturday 16 February
Please tie a red balloon outside the railings of the hospital, take a picture, send to your local paper, Facebook it to your own page and to the Save Lewisham Hospital page.

Friday 15 February 1pm
LUNCHTIME RALLY at the war memorial opposite the hospital.

Date to be announced
An event is being organised in which people born in – or who gave birth in – Lewisham Hospital, their friends, families, colleagues and supporters, can join hands around the hospital. More info here.

Also read the latest news from Louise Irvine, Chair of Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign here.

Lewisham Council has launched a legal challenge and the Save Lewisham Hospital Campaign is in discussion with solicitors to mount a separate but complementary case. Both need help with fund-raising for legal fees.

In a letter to the Secretary of State, the Council is giving Jeremy Hunt until 22 February to withdraw his decision. A similar letter has been sent to Matthew Kershaw.

The Council has set up a Legal Challenge Fund to enable people to help by donating to the court costs. In the event that the court awards costs in the Council's favour (or if for any other reason your donation is not used for the legal action) the Council will donate your money to local charity Children First Lewisham.

You can contribute to the Hospital Legal Challenge Fund here (via debit or credit card).
