Ravensbourne Project History

A Short History

 Ravensbourne Toy Library and Ravensbourne Link (which would later form Ravensbourne Project), ran their schemes from 1976 using the Salvation Army Hall in Lewisham. These ran until 1996, when the Project started running its holiday daycare scheme, which would then lead to weekend schemes being launched in 2003 and still continuing today, all from Peter Every House.
