Elaine Maffrett receives Mayor's Civic Award

Congratulations to our Centre Manager Elaine on receiving a Mayor's Civic Award in recognition of her outstanding work in transforming our centre and developing the Food Hub to meet the changing needs of our community. The Awards, presented by Mayor Cllr. Janet Burgess, honour Islington's unsung community heroes and volunteers for their hard work and dedication during what has been a difficult year for many. 


We're incredibly proud of what Elaine's achieved and we'd like to thank everyone who's supported us on this journey, from volunteers (including our tireless mutual aid colleagues), donors & partners, to staff, trustees, and of course, our amazing community for making it all possible!
