Youth charity Hackney Quest is celebrating after reaching the £20,000 fundraising target to save it from possible closure.
The charity, based in Well Street, provides support for families and children in need.
They issued a “very urgent” plea in June after fears they could end up closing if the money wasn’t found.
However within a month they’ve raised £22,000. They’re now hoping for a last minute flurry of donations to reach £25,000, and ensure the service can carry on for even longer.
The charity, now in its 30th year, support around 100 people a week.
