IKEA London transforms Hackney Community Centre with charity makeover

Five London IKEA stores have funded and completed a makeover of a community centre in London’s Hackney.

The centre is run by Hackney Quest, a non-profit working with housing and homelessness organisation, Shelter, IKEA’s national charity partner.

The work included redesigning and upgrading the first floor of the centre with the installation of a new kitchen, as well as redecorating throughout and replacing all existing furniture and storage items with new IKEA products.

IKEA also provided all materials, labour, furniture and accessories, with the support of over 30 team members from IKEA stores in Croydon, Greenwich, Hammersmith, Wembley and Lakeside, as well as the retailer’s service office.

Michael Hawkins, London area manager, IKEA UK, said: “Creating better everyday lives for people across London communities is at the heart of IKEA London, so it’s been a pleasure to be involved in this project.

“We’re extremely proud of all the IKEA co-workers who have dedicated their time to making such a transformation possible in just five days, and hope that the refurbishment will give even more young people and families a warm and inviting space to connect and learn from each other. “
