Homeless charity fails to find cash
Rhythms of Life appeals for help to find a new premises so it can continue feeding Hackney’s homeless
A homeless charity is facing an uncertain future after failing to find enough money to continue at its base in Crossway, Dalston.
But the 40 or more homeless people who are fed meals may go hungry if the charity cannot find a new base.
Rhythms of Life founder Andrew Faris urged anyone who can help with money or premises to contact the charity.
He said: “We are in desperate need of finding somewhere in Dalston or the surrounding areas before the winter kicks in.”
Mr Faris added that the charity had looked at cut-price premises near Kingsland Road’s Geffrye Museum but had met opposition from nearby residents.
The charity could serve food from a van “as a last resort”, he said – but he was hoping to find a larger base so it could help homeless people beyond merely giving them food.
To donate money – or if you have premises that would be appropriate for the charity, which is prepared to pay rent and upkeep – call (0207) 254 9534 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
