Vulnerable children and families supported by a charity in Bow received tasty food parcels donated by a UK Pakistani restaurant chain.

Each parcel arrived hot at lunchtime and were suitable to be re-heated for evening meals.

The Bow nursery supports some of the poorest families and is currently looking after children of keyworkers.

Barnardo’s London director Lynn Gradwell said: “The food parcels were given to some of our most vulnerable families, which include nursery-aged children whose parents are frontline keyworkers, young carers and parents whose children have disabilities.”
