Why did ‘Sabrina’ fall into poverty?


Superheroes and playing cards at Benthal Primary School in Stoke Newington. They’re dressed up to raise money for the Winter Toy Appeal.

孩子們裝扮成了超級英雄和紙牌——這裡是斯托克紐因頓的本瑟爾小學。他們這是為了給 「冬季玩具捐贈呼籲」 籌款而盛裝打扮。

43 percent of children in inner London are living in relative poverty. This annual appeal was set up in response. The co-founder delivers another load of brand new toys to the Hackney Foodbank in Hoxton.


Basil Fasal, Winter Toy Appeal
Thousands of children in this area are really suffering and living in poverty. So our aim is to try to ensure that all of them get a special present to open on Christmas Day.

‘Sabrina’ has received one of the gifts.


Conscious of the stigma surrounding her situation, she prefers not to be fully identified. After her contract ended abruptly, she was forced to apply for universal credit [government assistance], but the money took three months to arrive.


‘Sabrina’, parent
My car ended up getting repossessed. I ended up falling into rent arrears. You don’t want to see your child’s face on Christmas Day, you know, no presents under the tree or not even a single present even if you don’t have a tree. But nothing to open and then when they go back to school. “What did you get for Christmas?”
