Islington Giving is delighted to welcome Midtown Business Improvement District (BID) as a supporter! They are contributing a Christmas donation of £10,000 to our Crisis and Recovery Fund, making a significant difference to the work of groups reaching out to the most vulnerable people in Islington.
Midtown BID sits between Islington and Camden, and comprises Bloomsbury, Clerkenwell, Farringdon, Holborn and St Giles. They are the collective voice of over 370 organisations, representing a highly diverse commercial and cultural base of creative, educational, legal, medical, professional, scientific and technological brands of global significance.
Alex Jan, Chair of Midtown BID said: “This year has been particularly tough on the charitable sector. As hard as everyone found lockdown and the economic fallout from it, there has been much debate around the levels of suffering endured by different parts of society.
“That’s why we are very pleased to support a very important local charity, Islington Giving. An organisation who is committed to working with the most vulnerable in our community, addressing inequality and ending poverty.
“We wholeheartedly support them in their efforts and we hope this donation, and our ongoing support, goes some way to help make a difference in our neighbourhood. We believe working in collaboration is the key to get us through this pandemic, and we want to play our part.”
Sarah Benioff, Director of Islington Giving said: “We at Islington Giving are so grateful to you and all at the Midtown BID for your very generous donation! This will go such a long way towards helping those most affected by the crisis in these very difficult times in Islington.”
