Plaistow shop raises £1,000 for Beckton hospice

07:00 18 October 2012

A children’s hospice is £1,000 better off thanks to the efforts of an East End shop.

The owners of Nisa, in Barking Road, Plaistow, took part in the Making a Difference Locally initiative organised by Nisa, which runs donation schemes for smaller community charities.

When customers bought the groceries, a proportion of the retail price was put in a pot for charity.

Nalin Patel and wife Usha decided to donate the money to Richard House Children’s Hospice in Beckton, and added just over £200 to the total raised through Making a Difference Locally to bring it to £1,000.

Mr Patel said: “Richard House really reached out to us when we found out more about it, we felt it was the charity we should be donating to. It’s a great cause that provides much needed support for children and it’s something that means a lot to so many people.”
