Marie Curie Charity Collector - Lordship Lane

Recommended Posts

I can see there are some comments regarding charity collectors or chuggers outside Somerfield on Lordship Lane.


I'd just like to say on the positive side, I met a lovely chap collecting on behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Care today. Unfortunately, I didn't catch the gentleman's name, but he was so polite and charming. Not to mention the fact he is 86 years of age and was out in the snow and freezing weather.


He may be known already to many of you, but I have nothing but admiration for this chap, as i've seen him collecting many times over the years.

Shygirl - to be fair the comments today were about a charity collector inside co-op pestering people in the middle of their shopping with exremely inappropriate comments. I'm sure that this person is not at all in the category of the gentleman you mention who appears to be giving up his spare time for a charity, and doing so in an entirely charming and appropriate way.

Legalbeagle,


I am merely singing the praises of someone doing a very good job.


No issue here.

I also encountered this gentleman today and was very impressed by his dedication in the freezing cold weather, he had by this time moved inside the co-op but was extremely polite and charming and people seemed more than happy to donate, he actually brightened up my day.

    • Leon is super-helpful and very easy to deal with. Called him first thing on Saturday morning and he was here within a few hours. Quickly identified the problem, sorted it, didn’t charge me for a part either. I really recommend him. 
    • When I watch the clouds from my window they quite often appear like very slow-moving lines of vehicles on a multi-lane highway, gradually edging forward. So I was rather doubtful when I just now saw them creep forward a very small amount, pause a short while, and then make a small reverse, more or less back to the point they'd advanced from.  Another pause, and then the same repeated.  And again and again.   More perhaps like a small moored boat, being blown by the wind.  I don't at this moment remember seeing anything quite like that before, at least for it to seem so memorable, though possibly i have, and forgotten. I doubt it's peculiar to Dulwich, but Dulwich is where I happen to be, and it is nature.  So hello clouds.
