A Harlesden sickle cell charity has received a £3,000 boost from a global food specialist celebrating its 21st anniversary.

Staff from the Sickle Cell Society, in Station Road, were presented with a cheque for £2,000 from Tropical Sun.

The company also donated £1,000 worth of its products including coconut oils, coconut water and teas to help the charity’s service users manage their health.

The Sickle Cell Society helps those with the red blood cell disorder to reach their full potential through accessing a range of support services, education resources and restorative holidays.

It aims to increase understanding of the disease and resolve the variability of treatment for those living with it.

John James, chief executive, said: “The Sickle Cell Society is very grateful for the support and donation from Tropical Sun. Sickle cell disorder mostly, but not exclusively, affects people from African and Caribbean backgrounds, so it is good to see that Tropical Sun, a company with its roots in the Caribbean, is supporting these communities.”
