A “wonderful” charity is celebrating after it gathered more than 2,500kg of supplies for Islington Food Bank this year.
House On The Rock Church, which holds services at The Rock Tower, in Tufnell Park Road, formally presented its food collection to the mayor of Islington, Cllr Dave Poyser, on Sunday.
The church started collecting food for Islinton Food Bank in 2016, when it accumulated 1,000kg of goods.
It raised 1,500kg worth the following year and more than 2,000kg last year.
The mayor of Islington Cllr Dave Poyser said: "I think it's really wonderful and captures the spirit of Islington.
