Meet the little boy selling his toys to stop locals going hungry

Food Bank

Six-year-old Pearse Coyne has just sold lots of his toys and donated half the profits to Hackney Food Bank.

He used the money to buy a trailer full of food for people experiencing poverty.

His mum Anne said: “We’d talked a lot about poverty and about how unfair it is that some families are struggling to afford food. So, when it came to having a clear out of toys, he was keen to sell them and help others.

“He was super excited to go shopping and choose all the food – he put a lot of love into choosing food he thought people would enjoy!”

Pearse, who lives in Stoke Newington, sold a wooden train set, a garage and some Paw Patrol toys to fund the donation.
