Can you buy a new gift for a local child living in poverty this winter?
Please CLICK LINK IN BIO.
Thousands of children in Hackney & Islington are sadly living in desperate poverty. In Hackney alone almost 2,000 children live in temporary or hostel accommodation and many parents are going without food so their children can eat. .
Our Winter Toy and Food Appeal collects new toys for children in most need - they're distributed via the Ivy Street Family Centre and an amazing network of social workers, hostels, hospices, refuges, schools, children's centres, the food bank and Hackney Migrant Centre. .
Last year toys collected through the Appeal reached 4,000 children, many of whom would not have otherwise received anything. This year we hope to reach 5,000. .
Please buy a new gift, ideally from a fabulous local shop. And please spread the word. We have set up collection points at the following locations: . . Location Location, 18 Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 0LU (Huge thanks to these guys for their amazing work with the Toy Appeal!)
. Hackney Pirates, 138 Kingsland High Street, E8 2NS
