Hi everyone, my name is Hasan Patel and I’m a 15 year old boy from Leyton in East London, historically a very deprived area with high levels of poverty. I’m raising money for my local food bank, ‘Eat or Heat’ who run an invaluable service for our community’s most vulnerable residents. They also host community events to bring people together. I don’t want to be political but austerity has affected many of us and around 4 million children now live in poverty. Universal Credit is being rolled out in Waltham Forest this year leading to an inevitable rise in food bank use.Please donate so that the food bank can buy items that aren’t donated regularly - especially sanitary items as well as extending shelf space.Also, if you donate you can set me a challenge and I’ll try do it - please be nice! Thank you so much. If you want to keep in touch follow me on Twitter @CorbynistaTeen.
