Charity description

St Mary's Centre N16 logo
Can you help us create a vibrant new community hub in the heart of Stoke Newington? We need your support now to make the dream a reality.
 

St Mary’s has launched a £250K cash appeal to ensure charities and cultural groups can keep a toe hold in the area. With rising rents and business rates in Hackney this is becoming more difficult. Behind St Mary's Church is a Community Centre that has become unfit for purpose. For example, there is only one shower for the 25 homeless people who turn up for the Night Shelter. The Migrant Centre is turning people away as the rooms are full to capacity and there is no privacy for those seeking medical advice from Doctors of the World. The Centre puts a vital roof over the Hackney Food Bank also desperately in need of more space. The community groups including the Kehillah North London (Synagogue) who all use this Centre need better facilities. We cannot provide a soup kitchen or debt advice centre due to the unsuitability of the kitchen and meeting rooms. Will you please give as much as you can. Remember! The amount we are seeking is less than the cost of a studio flat in Stoke Newington! Thank you
