As a local Councillor who represents Longbridge Ward in Barking, I was angered and upset to learn in the Barking and Dagenham Post that Zayn Khan, a local 15 year old boy, had his bike stolen from him by violent robbers.
I am crowdfunding to get Zayn a new bike from Halford's - a direct replacement for the one that was taken from him.
Barking and Dagenham is 'One Borough; One Community', please donate to get Zayn a new bike and show him kindness and support following this terrible incident.
If we are successful, Zayn and his family will be invited to collect his new bike from the Town Hall.
Cllr Faruk Choudhury, Longbridge Ward
