This weekend the Islington Lib Dems were overwhelmed by the generosity of residents as they collected donations for our local foodbank.
Bradley Hillier-Smith, Lib Dem Candidate for the forthcoming council by-electing in Barnsbury, held a stall outside the Sainsburys' in Angel and asked shoppers if they would be willing to purchase certain items to donate the foodbank. We did not expect the massive out pouring of kind-heartedness that we then witnessed throughout the day.
Bradley and other volunteers collected a huge amount which was gratefully received by the Islington foodbank, where stocks have been low in the last few weeks.
Bradley commented: "It has made me proud to be an Islington resident and be part of the this tolerant, generous and open-hearted community.
"I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped make this supermarket drive a success.
This has shown me that when we work together we can have a positive impact on our local community. With your support, I aim to continue to work hard for the local area as the Lib Dem candidate for the by-election".
Polling day is on the 14th July.
