Wanstead resident Frank Charles is raising money to buy a van to support his charity work feeding the local community.

Frank – who was recently awarded a British Empire Medal for his services to charity – runs a foodbank out of his spare room, helping families in Waltham Forest, Newham and surrounding areas.

“Having a van will help immensely, for collecting and delivering food, clothes, furniture and other basic, yet vital items. I really appreciate all the support,” said Frank.
