Last week, I had the privilege of visiting two incredible organisations in Ilford: Project Malachi and the Ilford Salvation Army Corps on Clements Rd. It was truly inspiring to meet passionate individuals like Dean and Charlotte, who are dedicated to making a positive impact in their community.

At Project Malachi, I witnessed firsthand the remarkable work being done to rebuild lives and provide hope to those in need. The dedication and resilience of the team are evident, and it’s heartening to see the positive impact they are making in the lives of so many.

Similarly, my visit to the Ilford Salvation Army Corps on Clements Rd reaffirmed the importance of community support and compassion. The warmth and hospitality extended to me were truly touching, and I am grateful for the opportunity to witness the transformative work being done by organisations like this.
