You can win £1,000 for a community group in Newham, Tower Hamlets or Hackney


Do you live or work in Newham, Tower Hamlets or Hackney and have an interest in local issues?

If so you could win £1,000 for your chosen community group by taking part in an online questionnaire on behalf of East End Community Foundation (EECF).

The charity, which funds grassroots organisations in east London, has launched the five-question ‘Vital Signs’ survey in a mission to find out the biggest issues residents face.

A similar survey carried out last year showed that housing and safety was the biggest issue.

Tracey Walsh, chief executive of EECF said: “Vital Signs is key in helping EECF understand how well our local community is performing compared to areas across London and the UK and steer how we can best respond to those issues.

“I encourage local people to answer the questions as the opinion of local residents is important in helping us understand needs and the importance they put on them.”

The names of everyone will be placed into a draw with one person winning the cash for a local organisation of their choice.
