Wanstead resident Frank Charles’ Give a Gift Appeal is in the running to receive funding from Asda’s Green Token scheme.
The charity – which grants wishes to those with life-threatening illnesses and provides food for the homeless – is on the shortlist for the Leyton Mills store, with voting taking place online.
During the pandemic, Frank started a foodbank from his own house and fundraised food and essentials to create parcels for people who were in need, delivering parcels to vulnerable, volunteering and helping the local community get back on tracks and feed their families. Now caring for the homeless in Stratford, he distributes the food as the number of people on the streets is rising.
At the time of writing, Frank’s charity has received 70% of the vote. Voting is open until the end of June.
