They include food, educational resources, fitness essentials, soft toys, books, clothes and other items to help single parents or those living alone and on a low income.

“We’re overwhelmed by the volunteers,” said Tania-Cyren Cyrus, director, founder and chief executive of DILI Management. “We are all one team, one family and one community.

“So many people joined the movement and came together to make this project work and I’m so grateful.”

An unnamed recipient of a basket in Wood Green said: “It was emotional, and I was extremely grateful for food, books and fitness items.”
