It will now be used by Age Concern, Diabetes UK, drama groups, cancer support and armchair keep fit.

Cllr Donald said: “Havering is home to such a vibrant and active community in many ways. I am so proud and encouraged that Tesco Roneo Corner are just one of 14 UK stores leading the way in recognising and valuing what we have on our doorstep.

“By opening up this room you are not just providing space, you are providing a hope to a whole community and a whole new generation of talent.”
