Visitors can get help with their health and wellbeing and enjoy a free vegan curry at the South Mitcham Community Centre, Haslemere Ave, Mitcham, CR4 3PR open from 11am to 3pm.
Blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol and cancer screening checks will be available and the NHS vaccinations team will be on hand for anyone eligible who has missed a flu or Covid-19 jab. This will be the last chance to get your booster as the autumn campaign comes to an end at the weekend. It’s not too late to receive a booster vaccination and protect you and your loved ones this winter and you can come forward before Sunday 12 February.
