From the early days of Limehouse Aid emerging The Royal Foundation of St Katharine sought to offer its support. RFSK has a long history of commitment to the community here in the East End. As a significant charity it has been able to contribute fresh creative ideas into the life of Limehouse, recently by opening the Yurt cafe and supporting community groups. During the Covid crisis the whole of RFSK offered itself to become part of the NHS provision for The Royal London and Barts, to give ‘step down’ support for non covid patients who were, for various reasons, unable to go home. The Yurt café transformed into a much loved grocery store, enabling the local community to continue to feel connected despite the social isolation required.
