Do you live in Hackney Wick or E20? Looking for ways to help your neighbours out?
Coronavirus has hit people in our communities hard; people have less of what they and their families need to get through the week.
We’ve launched The Exchange, a project in E20, delivering weekly packages to households in need of a little extra support.
Know someone who needs some baby toys? Use The Exchange to help with collecting them from your neighbours, and share them out.
Able to buy a few extra tins when you go to the shop? Donate them to The Exchange who will get them to the household that needs them.
Desperate for new books to keep you occupied? Ask The Exchange to start a book collection, and get reading.
Scroll down for our current open collections to find out what is needed for donation at the moment (updated regularly).
