During the strictest period, charities such as Ambition, Aspire, Achieve (AAA) came to the fore as a vital community resource to those confined to their homes.

With people now able to leave home more freely, it’s important to reflect on the Newham charity’s work over recent months.

Founder Kevin Jenkins says AAA has continued supporting 40 families and 140 children since that decisive March date, particularly by delivering packages of food, budget recipes and recreational items.
