Crowdfunder secures a makeover for Hackney’s TopUp Truck

This trusty milk float struggles to get past 14 miles per hour yet for those looking to live more sustainably in Hackney, it’s something of a legend!

The TopUp Truck was born in lockdown – a mobile zero waste shop selling dried goods, oils and vinegars, larder foods such as sauces and chutneys, household cleaning refills and beauty products. Local Buyers Club members save 10%.

Following a successful Crowdfunder, the 21-year-old electric float is about to get a makeover. Local designer Adam Azmy has constructed a modular structure with lots more storage to make the float weatherproof and secure and there’ll be gravity dispensers too.
