A Harold Hill woman is aiming to fundraise for charity and help businesses by organising a virtual Christmas fayre.
Coryn Maile has set up the event, running until Christmas Eve, which includes online stalls and games.
There will also be advertising opportunities for businesses who donate a small fee to charity with money going to Havering Mind, which supports people with mental health difficulties.
Coryn said: “The aim of the event is to support local businesses that have had a particularly tough year, as well as raise some much needed funds for charity.
“Mental health charities have such an important role to play in society, especially given the current situation, so to support them in even a small way is incredibly beneficial to them.”
