People partied in a Wandsworth street when they gathered to show support for those with learning disabilities.

The bunting was out for this year’s Certitude Street Party in Wardley Street which saw a range of stalls selling items including donated goods whilst a live band and DJ entertained guests.

The party on Saturday, June 23, was organised by staff at The Friends of Wardley Street who helped set up gazebos, source raffle and tombola prizes or worked on stalls.

Every summer the Certitude Respite Team in Wandsworth join with the community to close the road and throw this fundraising bash for families, friends, carers and people who use the service.

Certitude provides personalised support across London to people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health support needs and their families.

Catherine Austin who manages the respite team at Wardley Street said: “I was delighted to see so many people enjoying themselves this year - including people we currently support, people we have supported in the past, families, carers and members of the public.”

Cllr Angela Graham, of Earsfield ward joined in the party as well as help with the fundraising.

The event raised more than £600 which will be used by The Friends of Wardley Street to make a respite stay at the house more enjoyable for guests.

Catherine added: “It’s a great opportunity for everyone to make new connections, meet new people and demonstrate that people we support have an active presence in their local community and are able to make a valuable contribution to it.

“The band were great and lots of people seemed to enjoy having a bop! Everyone worked tirelessly to make it a success and it was lovely to have so much community support including from the local pub who donated tables and let us fundraise in their garden.”
