Hackney GIving

Tour of Britain - starting November 2020

The volunteers, staff and trustees of Hackney CVS are undertaking an ambitious challenge to walk 6,500 miles, the equivalent of around the UK!

The money raised will go to smaller grassroots charities in Hackney working most effectively within local communities to support those most in need during the ongoing pandemic.

If you would like to sponsor the team, please click here. Your support is really appreciated and will make a difference to people in Hackney.

Why Hackney Giving?

Quotes from Hackney residents supported by local groups funded by Hackney Giving

  • They have been calling us to give us advice through phone, WhatsApp. I don't know where we would have been without the help from the charity. Hawa Trust

  • The project at the farm has been an incredible opportunity for me to mix and engage with everyone during this difficult time. It is amazing to learn from each other and to encourage one another. I have built friendships. I also like spending time gardening outdoors in nature and petting the animals. This has improved my mental health. My confidence has grown and my anxiety has reduced. Hackney City Farm

  • Without Coffee Afrik and Abdi, my family would not have survived. I had suicidal thoughts, no food and lost my job during Covid19, they are like our family. Nobody else is helping like Coffee Afrik, they are the only Somali support. Coffee Afrik
