Helping the homeless through family fun day in Barking
PUBLISHED: 09:00 30 September 2015
A family fun day helped raise hundreds of pounds for the homeless.
Charity Maide Create teamed up with drop-in centre The Source to put on the event at The Source shop in the Vicarage Field shopping centre in Barking on Saturday.
The partnership drew big donations from companies such as Asda and the National Checking Service. Both gave away big donations to help the cause raise £300 on the day.
Harsharan Howell, director of Maidie Create, said: “The event was a successful one as it also highlighted and brought awareness to the community of all the great work that The Source does to help the homeless and vulnerable people in Barking and Dagenham.”
Donations were not the only thing given to the homeless on the day, with Chris Laney from Positive Change Consultancy, St Erkenwald’s Church in Levett Road, Barking, and The Bath House in Town Quay, Barking, all donating toiletries.
