Thanks for sharing Bamboo. I'm going to keep my eye on this as I think it would go well on the wall of the charity that we are currently volunteering for.

Out of interest - what does that message translate as?

Hey BO,

The graffiti message, in Spanish simply reads in English (translated by a Spanish friend at the time and also backed up in other online translations) as;

"We will bleed our ink into walls, until they fall and meet the earth."

For me it's a perfect metaphor to say "we will keep on going until that message is understood" build another wall? We'll keep on. It's much more broader in terms of adversity but I felt it relevant to this cause and especially for SARI.

I can/will provide a small info card with the print for display/educational purposes if required.

Thanks, Bamboo  Smiley

Cheers Bamboo. That makes sense!

When I say its me volunteering, I have done a couple of shifts at weekends but the wife is there more or less 5 times a week. Its a charity called Streets Kitchen which helps homeless. She is helping at the Brixton branch which is helping to feed and provide information and basic items (toothbrushes and toothpaste, books, information on where to get help etc) to over 100 homeless who are housed in Hotels across SW London.

https://www.streetskitchen.org/

Charity work has always something I've been interested in but never really deeply involved, i'd like to do some more of it the closer I get to being able to semi-retire/retire.

Remind me to keep an eye on your ebay listing as I have a terrible memory!! Smiley

Wow, that's awesome. Huge huge credit to your wife (and yourself).  It's a big cliché but I genuinely believe in the mantra of "Charity doesn't start at home, but where it is needed." I know several people who don't agree with that sentiment (family included) but to me it is something that one shouldn't be vilified for believing in.

I used to spend a fair bit of time around Brixton, when I lived near Newbury I used to visit my friend a few times in South nodnoL. Most of his friends were of Caribbean descent and got to know a few of those blokes well too. Had some cracking evenings just down from Oval.

I'll give you a nudge or DM you the link to it in due course Smiley
