heard on the radio this evening a woman called cath who works as a cook at the london irish centre in camden town.
she said they had to suspend their usual programme of lunch clubs for the elderly, advice sessions, social groups.
she pointed out that the irish were the oldest ethnic group in britain.
then she said that an appeal went out on their website and in 24 hours £25,000 had been raised for their outreach programme.
she said if anyone needed food, because they could not afford it, or access/ find it, they would try to get some to them. didnt have to be irish, and anywhere that they could get to, they would bring it to them. she sounded a londoner.
it was quite moving to hear.
fortunately i dont need it, but if someone on here knows someone who does, within striking distance of camden town, please contact them.
