Play dominoes and check your health

Brixton Immortals domino club is organising a three-match championship combined with entertainment and a chance to discuss health and wellbeing.

The second and third of the six-hour matches will be in Lambeth town hall in Brixton.

The first will be in Bellenden Road, Peckham, at the ElimHouse Community Association tomorrow (21 May).

The Brixton matches will be on Saturday 28 May and Saturday 11 June.

All matches will run from 3.30 to 9.30pm and will be followed by entertainment with a sound system until 1.30am.

The Immortals are running the events with three community organisations:

MYcommunity Lambeth, part of Age UK Lambeth, providing support on health, housing and finances;

Black Thrive Global, which evolved from the work of the Black Thrive Lambeth partnership, which was established in 2016 to address the inequalities that negatively impact the mental health and wellbeing of Black people in the borough;

Hills, Brooks & Dales primary care network of GP practices in Tule Hill and Herne Hill.

Members and guests will be invited to:

  • Engage with the local health and wellbeing team
  • Have a blood pressure check and take advice
  • Talk to community link workers about any support needs and get information about local projects and services.
