East Finchley Open Artists (EFOA) winter fair raffle held in November raised donations totalling £1250.00 for the Finchley Food Bank, EFOA’s charity of the year. The fair showcased handmade art and crafts by local artists in East Finchley.

The donation helps the food bank provide a variety of essential foods, toiletries, and baby items in the coming winter months. Supporting this cause makes Christmas a bit brighter for families in our community who are struggling right now.

The Foodbank is currently supporting 720 people from 248 households. The donation will be used to fund gaps in the food donated by shops and people in the community.
