Airport Sponsors Community ‘Shop and Drop’ Service
London City Airport recently sponsored The Royal Docks Learning and Activity Centre, a community organisation in North Woolwich, Newham, £1,500 towards a shopping initiative.
The shop and drop scheme runs a drop off and collection service for local residents over 60 in the Royal Docks area who find it difficult to get to the supermarkets in Gallions Reach and Beckton.
The minibus used is supplied by the airport’s onsite company, London City Cars, who also supply a driver for the service on a Wednesday.
On Wednesday 2 October sponsors, organisers, local councillors and users gathered at the Royal Docks Learning and Activity Centre to celebrate the success of the service which has been running for around 3 months.
