The Mayor has chosen to support Hammersmith & Fulham Foodbank and The Barons Court Project as his charities to support during his mayoral year. Both have an impressive record in helping people in Hammersmith & Fulham.
The Hammersmith & Fulham Foodbank is an independent charity founded in 2010, to meet the need of local people experiencing food poverty. Since launching, they have provided enough food to prepare over 200,000 meals and grown from one foodbank centre – into three. As well as emergency food parcels, they also work with partners to try and solve some of the underlying causes of poverty. The generosity of the public ensures that they are able to continue to meet growing need.
The Barons Court Project is a day centre offering a range of practical services to people who are homeless or living with mental health issues. Our friendly drop-in offers a safe and welcoming space, a subsidised cafe, showers, laundry and IT suite. We also support our service users through running a range of opportunities for self-development and participation. Much of these opportunities are volunteer led and we have built up partnerships with the local community and corporate groups to widen our offer.
A fundraising event with James Bowen, the best-selling author of A Street Cat Named Bob, is taking place at Hammersmith Town Hall on 23 June 2017. For more information read the news story.
