Branko Kiprovski is handing out masks, hand sanitiser and visors to businesses, foodbanks and families in the borough with his new Action Against Covid-19 project.

The 38-year-old Macedonian racer, who has won rally competitions around eastern Europe and is scheduled to compete in the BMW Compact Cup this weekend, is appealing for donations so he can keep the initiative running.

He said: “I try to find the people who most need it (the equipment) by helping out neighbours on the frontline who have the most contact (with coronavirus) or people who can’t afford food.”

Since 2017, Branko has also been running a road safety initiative in Islington schools.
