Feed The Streetz recently received an unexpected donation from a local Wanstead resident called Shelley who held a bingo fundraiser at her house raising much needed money for rough sleepers in East London. FTS would like to thank Shelley and everyone who attended this fundraiser .
FCGAGA made its 16th annual visit to Acorn Children's Ward , Whipps Cross Hospital on the 23/12/19 in the afternoon. In attendance were Haslers Accountants / Foundation from Loughton , who have supported FCGAGA in every way possible over the years. We were warmly received as always by the staff on Acorn Ward and were humbled to to go onto the ward giving out presents to sick children who were not well enough to go home for Christmas. I brought along my London 2012 Olympic Torch for I see the torch as a symbol of hope and courage which the sick children on Acorn Ward have in abundance. This year was the most presents that FCGAGA had received in the 16 years that we have been going , thank you ever so much.
I would like to thank these people who supported this years toy appeal and made it all possible.

Feed The Streetz Christmas breakfast was held this morning at Morrisons, Stratford E15 for rough sleepers in the area.A enjoyable time was had by all who attended and the staff were excellent and made everyone feel most welcome. Morrisons also decorated the table so that it had that extra feel of Christmas to it, Raj the store manager came down especially to have a photo with all of us.
It was a pleasure and very humbling for me to sit and have breakfast with the same rough sleepers I normally feed every Friday morning throughout the year
A massive thank you to John Wagstaff for organising the Xmas breakfast to be filmed then put on You Tube afterwards.
FTS would like to thank these people for their support to FTS during the Christmas period.

On Thursday 21st November FCGAGA was kindly invited by Haslers Foundation to attend the above event held at the Hallmark Hotel London , Chigwell Prince Regent, Manor Rd , Chigwell. It was a fun and interesting evening with other charities in attendance who have also been supported by HF over the years .
The big quiz for Haslers Foundation
On Thursday 28th February 2019 Haslers Foundation held its annual quiz and fundraising evening at the Hallmark Hotel, London, Chigwell Prince Regent from 6-30pm - 10-00pm. FCGAGA were kindly invited again as one of the charities that Haslers support. It was good to meet up with some of the other charities such as The Dream Factory, and St Clare's Hospice. The whole event was very entertaining, lots of fun and at the end of the night a grand total of £5,500 was raised for the Haslers Foundation. On behalf of everyone at FCGAGA a big thank you to Haslers Foundation for inviting us.
On Thursday 20th December 2018 the charity visited Acorn Children's Ward for what was our fifteenth year in succession bringing toys to sick children. We were supported by Haslers Foundation from Loughton who were attending for the fifth year. This event went very well and was covered by London Live TV and shown later on in the evening and could also be viewed online as well. The amount of presents delivered was the most received in the fifteen years that I have been doing this. so thank you to everyone who donated it was very much appreciated.
A big thank you to Haslers Foundation who have been more than supportive of FCGAGA throughout the years and delivered some amazing presents as always to Acorn Ward .

FCGAGA will be sad not to see Tracey Cockley at the this years Christmas Toy Appeal , for she will soon be leaving her post in the Hospital and Home Teaching Service on Acorn Children's Ward at Whipps Cross Hospital. So the least we could do was to buy her some chocolates and a farewell card for all that Tracey has done for us. Tracey and the other staff have always been polite and warm to me and my charity supporters whenever we have brought toys to the sick children over the festive period, we wish Tracey and her family all the best for the future and thank you once again.
