Charities centre opens in Holloway after �2m revamp
London’s largest centre for charities has reopened after a �2million refurbishment.
Resource for London, in Holloway Road, Holloway, has just been revamped and now boasts top-class offices, meeting rooms, exhibition spaces and conference facilities.
Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour MP for Islington North, who was among the 100 people who attended the opening ceremony, said: “Resource for London provides comfortable and affordable surroundings in which people can hold conferences, set up their offices or just share ideas – ideas that can help to tackle some of the biggest problems facing our communities.
“It is a vital resource for London’s voluntary sector and I hope charities and community groups across London use it.”
The centre was refurbished by the award-winning architectural practice Bennetts Associates, which is based in Rawstorne Place, Finsbury.
