Friends may have ended 13 years ago (three years longer than it was on television in the first place), but that did not seem the case when looking around damp, dark Clissold Park in Stoke Newington, London, on Thursday evening.

Help to tell the London recruits ’ story of fighting apartheid
In the 1960s and ’70s, volunteers from London travelled to South Africa to help the struggle against apartheid – and now UNISON branches can help spread the remarkable story of the London Recruits.

UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis is urging union members and anyone else to help fund this “remarkable story of ordinary young men and women risking their own lives fo...
