Celebrities set to pack bags in Islington for Ben Kinsella Trust

Former EastEnders actors Joe Swash and Natalie Cassidy will be at the fundraising event to support the trust set up in the tragic teen’s name.

Celebrities will be packing bags at Sainsbury’s in Islington on Saturday in aid of the Ben Kinsella Trust.

Well-known local faces such as Linda Robson, Joe Swash, Natalie Cassidy, Charlie Hawkins as well as Ben’s sister Brooke Kinsella and other relatives and friends will be at the fundraising event and speaking about the trust’s work at the Liverpool Road store between 2 and 8pm.

Ben was stabbed to death in June 2008 in Holloway at the age of 16 and his death shocked the nation. His family set up the trust in his name to help tackle the growing problem of knife crime.
