The summer series of Breakfast Club outdoor cookery sessions with chef David Latto engaged young people from the Hackney Young Carers charity, the Learning Trust’s re-engagement programme and the Claudia Jones Organisation.

The sessions took place thanks to Nick Griffiths, the founder of Land of Kings club nights, who ran the Hackney half-marathon earlier this year to raise funds for the garden in Dalston Lane.
