On Monday-Wednesday of next week, Galleywood Vicarage garden is going to become a slum. Inspired by "slum survivor", a ministry of the youth movement Soul Survivor, six young people are going to be building a slum out of plastic, corrugated iron and wooden pallettes, and living in it for three days and two nights. The rules are: no toiletries, no food except rice and lentils cooked over a camping stove, no coming indoors except for the toilet. It's about raising funds for slum dwellers in southern Africa (over £1000 raised so far), but it's also about standing in solidarity with those who have no option but to live like this every day and every freezing night. The media have already started to show an interest, but make sure you drop by and see them too. Don't bring them chocolate, though - it not allowed! Galleywood Vicarage is at 450 Beehive Lane (next to Thriftwood School).
