Before lockdown Haseeb was a regular user of the Elhap playground in Woodford Bridge so Aliza decided to put her henna design skills to use for a good cause.

The sessions will be done in her aunt’s driveway in Grangeway Gardens and in between each 15 minute session they will clean the area to make it as safe as possible.
