The Mayor of Redbridge and an Ilford MP joined residents at a coffee morning in Aldborough Hatch to help raise more than £400 for The Children’s Society.
Councillor Debbie Kaur-Thiara, and Wes Streeting, MP for Ilford North, spent time in Spearpoint Gardens, in Aldborough Road North, and took time to enjoy the variety of flowers and shrubs, and to speak with residents.
The coffee morning raised £415 in two hours for The Children’s Society, the national charity that cares for vulnerable young people.
Resident Ron Jeffries who organised the event said: “Yvonne, my late wife, was local organiser for the society for many years and hosted the garden coffee morning.
“I have carried this on for not only does this raise much needed funds for the society, but it is a pleasant social occasion.
“After a shower of rain in the early morning, the sun came out and a light breeze made the morning cooler than recent days.”
