A Plaistow school has made a generous harvest donation to a food bank.
Parents and staff at Curwen Primary, in Atlas Road, donated items to be given to the food bank run by the Canning Town based charity Ambition Aspire Achieve (AAA).
The charity aims to provide opportunities to children and young people in need in the borough.
Demand for food banks is soaring as many families struggle with the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Trussell Trust has forecast a 61 per cent increase in the number of food parcels needed this winter.
