Pizza by the canal

An afternoon pizza party was held recently by the brain injury charity Headway on the Regent's Canal towpath in our ward.

The wood-fired pizza oven was hand built by members of the charity with materials donated by Allen Build contractors with E5 Bakehouse providing dough and pizza chefs.

The event raised over £500 for the charity.

The event was attended by Hackney South and Shoreditch MP Meg Hillier who said 'This is a fun way to raise [the charity's] profile. It is also really important for people who are finding difficulty getting into employment to have the opportunity to build confidence and skills'.

The great success of the event will hopefully mean a return visit to our ward by the charity and perhaps more pizza to enjoy for our residents and visitors.
