No matter where you sit on the scale of sedentary behaviour, this is a wonderful opportunity to become active - physically and socially - with the London community. As well as soaking up the sun, conversing with family and friends, and enjoying the BBQ.


After the BBQ please enjoy a special performance by the Al-Asala dabke group.


Once you've purchased a ticket, you can raise pledges from friends and family. All donations and left-over profits are distributed to a School for the disabled in Burj AlBarajne refugee camp in Lebanon

The disabled school, held at the Palestinian Arab Centre in the Bourj el-Barajneh Refugee Camp located in Lebanon, helps provide refugee children and young people with special needs and disabilities –including cerebral palsy, Down’s Syndrome, autism, behavioural disorder, developmental delay, deafness, paralysis, living in the camp with a wide range of projects, including tutoring, health and psychological assistance as well as promoting literary and artistic talents. They are hoping to extend educational and recreational activities by adding an extra day per week.
