Why support Fern Street Family Centre?


We get such a lot out of supporting Fern Street, more than we ever put in. We love coming out of the Canary Wharf ‘bubble’.”


At Fern Street Family Centre we believe that everyone has something to offer. This means that by supporting us you won’t only feel amazing by giving back to disadvantaged families in East London but you can enjoy being part of our community.

Your fundraising will help us:

  • fund day trips for disadvantaged children to places like London Zoo, the seaside, museums and outdoor learning centres
  • add to our lending library of storybooks and story-bags so local children can develop a love of reading and get a great start to school!
