- How to get Rose Vouchers in Tower Hamlets
Chrisp Street Market is at the centre of the Market Square and is located in close proximity to the three children’s centres distributing Rose Vouchers.
The launch of Rose Vouchers in Tower Hamlets is due to a successful public fundraising campaign we ran with the Big Give at the end of 2021, and funding from the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. A huge thank you to our supporters for making this launch a reality.
We are delighted to be collaborating with the Alexandra Rose Charity. This scheme not only increases access to fruit and veg but also supports local businesses and improves the health and wellbeing of residents.Dr Somen Banerjee, Director of Public Health, Tower Hamlets
“We’re delighted to be launching our eighth Rose Vouchers for Fruit & Veg Project in Tower Hamlets. Improving access to healthy food is one of the most powerful tools we have to improve the population’s health. The Rose Vouchers will help improve accessibility to fresh fruit and veg for young families and support them in giving their children the best possible start in life. This is more crucial than ever as many families are struggling to make ends meet as the price of food continues to rise.”Jonathan Pauling, Chief Executive of Alexandra Rose Charity
