A Stamford Hill school have teamed up with a national charity to support older people during the winter.
Pupils from Tawhid Boys School, in Cazenove Road, are collaborating with Age UK to donate food for the elderly.
The scheme is part of a campaign to help the borough’s most vulnerable and isolated residents.
Teacher and project co-ordinator, Is’Haaq Jasat, said: “This has been an ongoing campaign for the past four years and it demonstrates our commitment as a school to help the wider community, which also involves catering for the elderly community.
“We had a huge response from our students and they made a significant contribution by taking part in such a meaningful and important project.”
