We all need friends

The bonds we feel with our Friends are strong. Our new scheme builds on this. It enables Friends to provide generous regular gifts that underpin our essential work and help us keep supporting vulnerable members of our community.

Even before this crisis, people faced huge challenges. For many people in Bromley by Bow, Covid-19 is piled on top of having no food, no friends, no family and no money.

We have an immense long-term challenge – that’s why we need the regular help and generosity of our Friends.
