A community garden project has received funding from the Mayor of London.

Create London hopes to convert the White House, in Dagenham’s Becontree Estate, into a space for the arts and growing vegetables.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has pledged £10,000 towards the project’s target of £30,207.

Hadrian Garrard, director of Create, said: “The Mayor’s pledge is a huge boost for the White House garden and we are delighted to be one of 20 brilliant projects across London to receive support.

“We still have a way to go to reach our target by September so please get behind our campaign for a beautiful, green space for Dagenham.”
