Hibiscus Community Centre opened in 1994 in response to the lack of social and leisure facilities for African and Caribbean elders living in the London Borough of Newham. It is home of Hibiscus Caribbean Elderly Association (HCEA) a private company and registered charity which leased the building from the London Borough of Newham to deliver and develop its services. over the last twenty-five years a full range of services reflective of Caribbean culture have been developed and delivered locally and beyond.
On the 17 March, in response to the Coronavirus pandemic all face to face services were suspended and have continued to be suspended. However some services: Day Centre Exercise Classes and Members monthly social gathering are now delivered online via Zoom. The suspension of business activities has adversely impacted the Charity's finances. Seeking charitable donations is now one of only two income streams available. Any financial support you are able to offer by making a donation to one of our funding raising projects would be gratefully received.
