Badu Community
 “That Moment When…”is our annual festival hamper initiative that supports families in need from our local community over the seasonal period.“That Moment When…” supported 23 schools within Hackney and surrounding boroughs and provided 167 families with culturally specific hampers containing:
 
  • a present for every child in the family
  • a present for every parent
  • a family board game
  • supermarket vouchers – for food, gas and electric
  • selected food items tailored to the cultures and backgrounds of the families
  • festive recipes and ingredients so families can bake and cook together
  • festive crackers
 
Christmas is a special time of the year which is about bringing people together, but some people don’t always get to enjoy the festive season. To help these families “That Moment When”provided financial relief for families, reduced holiday hunger during this period and provides extra special moments that they’ll remember for years to come.
 
To achieve our target for this festive initiative, we arranged a number of activities as a part of a fundraising week!  
 
None of this would have been possible without the generosity and kindness of all our amazing partners, supporters and volunteers. The families, the generosity and kindness of local businesses and the community was truly overwhelming and exceeded our initial expectations.
 
Badu Community are grateful beyond for all the help we had to pull off this initiative, and we know we truly made a positive impact to local families over the 2019 festive period.
