A charity that aims to make homelessness a thing of the past in Havering has received a major donation from insurance brokers in South Okendon.

The team at SEIB Insurance Brokers voted to donate £8,000 to Hope4Havering, a homeless support charity in Okendon Road.

Chief executive and founder of Hope4Havering, Kim Merry said: "We will put the SEIB money towards opening a recycled furniture shop in Romford, on the former Palm Springs site.
