As Co-Chair she intends to support the development of the B£ as an inclusive social tool that creates accessible opportunities for all, develops local business, and strengthens our already incredible community.

Charlie Waterhouse

Charlie’s day job is being creative at This Ain’t Rock’n’Roll, a Brixton-born design agency (that now resides in Borough, the turncoats). Responsible for the design of the second edition (Bowie) Brixton Pounds, they also had the bright idea of asking Turner Prize-winning Jeremy Deller to produce our 5th Anniversary note. When not doing things like that, he’s likely failing to out-fox his two children, cycling very slowly up Brixton Hill or seeing The Fall. Charlie is 6’ 1”.
