The Stow Festival have teamed up with the Rose and Crown pub to raise money for homeless charity Thames Reach
A pub which used to be the regular haunt of a vulnerable missing man is to raise money for a homelessness charity.
The man, known only as Sundrum, visited the Rose and Crown in Hoe Street, Walthamstow, for decades but has not been seen since he was re-homed in Ilford during the summer.
A fundraising concert in aid of homelessness charity Thames Reach, which looked after Sundrum following a recent hospital stay, is to be held tonight.
The event also marks the start of the Stow Festival this weekend.
Chairman of the festival, Adam Taylor, said: “The Rose and Crown and Sundrum’s various supporters are desperately keen to find him.
“Thames Reach does incredible work and if we can put a few quid in their coffers, it’s all good.”
The pub and its regulars previously rescued Sundrum from potential deportation after documents outlining his right to be in the UK could not be found.
Mike Nicholas of Thames Reach said accommodation is still open to Sundrum.
“We’re worried about him and we want to help him back home where he’d be much safer,” he said.
“We’re looking for him, he is reported as a missing person and we have an alert out for him.”
A number of local bands will perform at the event, which starts at 7.30pm.
Admission is £5.
