The pandemic has forced major changes for Charlton Toy Library, which has helped families across Greenwich borough for nearly 40 years. LAURA DAY found out more about a much-needed charity.
When a Charlton resident was rehoused to a home without white goods, Charlton Toy Library was one of the organisations that were able to help. When a lady had triplets and needed a triple buggy, the toy library was able to get it for them thanks to support from the local community.
“Whatever we ask this local community for, they come up with it,” says Janine Khoshnevisan, the toy library’s treasurer. She describes the Charlton community as being full of kindness and empathy.
