A charity that works to reduce poverty in Islington has struck up a new partnership that will benefit it to the tune of £90,000.

Islington Giving will receive the cash from grant funder the Goldsmiths' Company Charity over the next three years.

Chair Rob Hull said: "We are thrilled to have another major funder join the Islington Giving board.

"It is a recognition of the valuable work being carried out by a coalition of voluntary and private sector partners in support of our local Islington community."

Ciorsdan Brown of the Goldsmiths' Company Charity added: "Both the Goldsmiths' Company Charity and Islington Giving are united by a common aim: to do good, better.
