Wanis and PL8 4U Celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee

On Sunday 5th June, residents of Waltham Forest came together at local charity PL8 4U’s street party in honour of the Queen’s Jubilee – and Wanis was on hand to support with cooking ingredients, snacks and drinks from some of our most popular brands including Tropical Sun, Bevelini and Tropical Vibes.

PL8 4U, who were commended by Her Majesty for their “remarkable” work during the Pandemic, run a much-needed food bank and other community projects designed to tackle poverty, cultural deprivation and isolation.

The charity’s founder, Saira Begum Mir BEM, BCAc decided to host a jubilee street party as she has fond memories of 1977’s Silver Jubilee and wanted to help create fond memories for Waltham Forest’s culturally rich and diverse community. “We are so grateful for the support provided by Wanis, which has enabled us to host such an amazing event for our customers and local residents” commented Saira.

As well as supporting PL8 4U, Wanis is also proud to partner with other community food initiatives including Peckham Pantry and Made in Hackney.
