London Riverside Foodbank Appeal

Jon Cruddas MP has been in touch with The London Riverside Church, Parsloes Avenue, Dagenham, RM9 5PT.

The church has been of great support to many of Jon’s constituents over the years. They run several community groups as well as operating a Baby Bank and “Store City”- their foodbank.

There are currently some items for the foodbank that would be particularly welcomed:

The National Trust in Dagenham & Rainham

Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham has been contacted by National Trust who are seeking support with their Save Our Wild Isles campaign. Over the years people all across the Dagenham and Rainham area have contacted the MPs office asking for support with various environmental and climate change focussed causes. Jon Cruddas said: “it is clear local people have a passion for the environment, and protecting nature.

"Love the Borough weekend" with London Riverside Church

Jon Cruddas MP was recently contacted by London Riverside Church in regard to their "Love the Borough weekend". 

The church, located on Parsloes Avenue in Dagenham, closes its usual three Sunday services to run a Fun Day for the local community.

For the third year running, the church welcomes local people to their Fun Day where there will be a variety of activities for children and young people, as well as a free BBQ, jumble giveaway and nail salon for all.

Alice Murphy: A Dagenham Girl

Jon Cruddas was recently contacted by the daughter of Alice Murphy. Alice moved to Dagenham in the 1930’s and attended Dagenham County High School. She trained as a primary school teacher; a career she never had the chance to follow as a Mother of seven children. She married Michael Murphy and by the time she passed away had been married for over 60 years.
