New year message: Community resilience will help us through
- Credit: Sarah Hoyle
This has been a tough year for us all, but the community of Kentish Town has been amazing.
More than 230 people have contributed towards our online fundraisers for our foodbank which has raised more than £12,500 to date.
Our young people worked tirelessly over the summer delivering food to local people and in the process developed leadership skills and grew in confidence.
Our older people have made us laugh with their relentless love of tea, biscuits, a quiz and a good prize, and we have had volunteers of all ages coming forward to help us.
2021 will not be easy, but our community has shown resourcefulness and resilience which will help us all though the next few years. This should definitely be celebrated.
