A Dagenham charity has set itself the goal of handing out 1,000 Christmas hampers this Christmas.

Harmony Community Projects, based in Kemp Road, will give festive treats to families on low incomes until December 23.

The charity’s founder, Wale Olulana, said: “Christmas could be an isolating and challenging time for some families. We know this from the number of people who turn up to our monthly food banks.

“Everyone deserves to enjoy the festive period without worrying about how they will buy even the most basic of things.

“We hope this small gesture brings hope and smiles to families during the festive season.”

Families in need will receive vouchers they can exchange for a hamper at the charity’s office. Hampers include soups, pasta, Christmas pudding, mince pies, biscuits and tea.

To get a voucher, find out where to exchange one or donate towards the cost of a hamper call Harmony Community Projects on 020 8597 1110.
