Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a charitable trust which was started by my brother who attended London School of Economics. He lived in London for 35 years and was the owner of Covent Garden Records. It was one of the first shops in London to have DVD's when it first came onto the market. He died of pancreatic cancer in 2008.

Why the Owner Chose Southwark:
The flat is ideally located and is spacious.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
All earnings from the rental minus expenses are donated for cancer research at the Royal Marsden Hospital and to The Marie Curie Hospice. Per my brother's wishes, a scholarship for a Master's degree student has been established at the London School of Economics.
