Donatus Anyanwu

I have been a councillor for Coldharbour, and previously Angell Ward, since 1998. It was a great honour to become Mayor of Lambeth in 2015, after being Deputy Mayor in 2014. I have held several Cabinet roles, including Housing, Adult Social Care and Health, Community Safety and Partnerships. I currently lead on the Voluntary and Community Sector, Leisure and Sports. As well as being a councillor, I have been a senior manager of several third sector organisations, including a national HIV charity.

Scarlett O’Hara

I moved to Brixton in 1991, learned to swim at the Rec, studied at Brixton College, danced at the Lambeth Country Show and ran 5K round Brockwell Park.

Over the last four years as a Labour councillor, I have got to know the wealth of organisations in Brixton and actively supported the work that they do, from Southwyck Pantry to Brixton Library and the Street Gym to the Lambeth Schools Patrol. I regularly join the litter pick atLoughborough Park and throughout the pandemic I packed food parcels at the Food Hub in Brixton Rec.
