THE KIND COUNTER, a new community social support and networking platform, has been launched in Tower Hamlets. It is a wellbeing communication platform which will be used to share books, food, clothes, stationary and bespoke items with anyone and everyone for free.
The East End Covid Network team – Abdal Ahmed, Rofikul Islam, Abul Hussain and Emdad Rahman – took part in the opening and distributed hot food and books to members of the public. It was also an opportunity for the team to say hello to members of the community.
The Kind Counter made its debut at East End Cycles on Mile End Road. Hussain from the local cycle repair shop commented, “We are proud sponsors of Emdad Rahman and his cycling exploits and have been looking for an opportunity like this. I’m really pleased we were able to use the Kind Counter to engage with the community today.”
Emdad Rahman of Bookbike London responded, saying, “We have a great team here and I’m pleased East End Cycles are hosting and supporting this simple but effective venture. Today’s meet and greet was good fun. We basically spend 30 minutes of our lunch break to do all this – it’s quick and makes a powerful impact. Thank you to Abdul Aziz from HFC, Whitechapel, for subsidising the food and to Cathy and Anorak Magazine for the books.”
