Hackney1000



Last weekend I was asked to photograph Hackney1000, an annual community fundraising event for Hackney Quest, a charity that aims to create better futures for some of Hackney's young people.

It was a delight, on a steaming hot day like no other this summer, with kids chasing down the miles to reach their aim of 1000 charity miles.  A band of the Olympic Opening Ceremony dancers jigged their way around the park, followed by swing dancing classes. Kids played table tennis and raced away on gym equipment.   BBQ tucker and a community cake stall fed hungry tummies and it was all beautifully set off by Candice's Stitch Kitchen bunting, lovingly made by volunteers to dress up the event.

Get involved next year!
