Some time ago we applied for a Covid-19 Hygiene Grant from ASDA Foundation for The Manna at St Stephen’s (Canonbury), who are supporting marginalised or vulnerable people and offering help to many who face the challenges of poverty, addiction, homelessness or poor health.
The Manna was the only place in London where, at the height of the pandemic, anyone could come and wash their clothes, and one of two places in London where anyone could come and have a shower. In such a difficult time they doubled their opening times so they could serve more people, as a lot of services like theirs got shut down.
Asda Leyton Mills is proud to have given the £500 cheque to this good cause to fund all the necessary cleaning products and personal hygiene items that they need.
Big thank you to all amazing staff who work and volunteer in the centre for never giving up on anyone!
