Fifty youngsters, who are part of the Carpenters and Dockland Centre in Gibbins Road, Stratford, enjoyed a trip to Odeon’s Covent Garden cinema to watch Paddington 2.

They were also provided with sweet treats and goodies to enjoy whilst they watched the popular bear’s latest adventure.

The screening was organised as part of Marks and Spencer’s wider commitment to Newham, which will see it trial a range of community initiatives to tackle issues that matter to people living in the borough.

The retailer has adopted Paddington as the star of this year’s Christmas campaign.

John Statham, store manager at the chain’s Westfield Stratford City branch, said: “We’re thrilled to have treated the young people who rely on the important services of the Carpenters and Dockland Centre to a fun evening out, to mark the start of the festive season.

“Our partnership with Paddington has provided us with the opportunity to create special moments for organisations that undertake vital work at the heart of local communities, which brings to life what the spirit of Christmas is all about.”
