A festive Hackney film has been released to send seasonal cheer around the borough.
The film features community contributors reflecting on the year passed as steelpan music and home-made lanterns from Morningside School accompany their heartfelt messages.
A Chanukah song sung by Simon Marks' school choir with dances from the Crib Youth Club in Hackney also features.
Rabbi Herschel Gluck says in the film: "However difficult things might seem, we can bring light and warmth, into society, into the world and make the world a better place."
Volunteers at Hackney’s Food Hubs make an appearance and the film showcases the fundraising efforts of the Hackney Festive Food Fund which is raising money and appealing for food donations to help make sure no one goes hungry this winter.
