The winner of ITV2’s Love Island is asking Havering clubbers to ‘give a kid a quid’ this Christmas.

Love Island star Kem Cetinay is backing an appeal from Romford club Fiction, on South Street, for revellers to donate spare change to charity The Echo Trust.

The charity give grants to childrens’ charities across the UK to provide essential medical equipment.

They have raised and donated more than £2 million since set up in 2002.

General manager James Hall said: “Christmas is a time for giving and we’re sure our customers will respond generously to our appeal.

“‘Give a Kid a Quid’ is a simple way to raise a lot of money that will transform the lives of local young people in our community.”

Kem, a former Romford hairdresser, has recently ventured into the world of rap, releasing a single earlier this year which topped the iTunes singles chart.

The appeal lasts until Saturday, June, 6.
