Councils around London have been taking action to promote cleaner air and reduce traffic pollution, particularly around local schools.  Local Liberal Democrats are campaigning for Islington Council to do more to tackle air pollution in the Borough.

Islington Lib Dems Easter appeal



Following the great success of our Christmas Charity Appeal when we collected 1.2 tonnes of food for the foodbank and donated over 50 toys to the Toy Project, the Islington Lib Dems are once again running a food and toy collection drive just before the Easter weekend. We will once again focus on stocking the Islington Food Bank and providing toys for The TOY Project UK. Both are fantastic local initiatives and do great work in our community.

We will be outside Sainsbury's on Liverpool Road on 24 March 2018 from 10am to 3pm with the Lib Dem stall, and we'd love to see lots of friendly faces, and of course donations. If you are able to join us, please do.

In terms of the actual donations, we'd really appreciate items from the foodbank's most wanted list (available here), and the Toy Project will accept all toys both new and used (please see here for more information).

If you'd like to donate to either causes but can't make it on the day, please email Alain Desmier, who will arrange for collection, at [email protected]
