We were so impressed by the way Islington Council’s street teams and our recycling boys rolled up their sleeves and helped clear up after the Camden Passage flood that we wanted to say a BIG formal thank you. It was heart-warming the way they went beyond the call of duty and swept, shovelled, jet-washed and carried anything they could to be of service. So today we teated them to breakfast at Bill’s cafe in White Lion Street.

“Everyone was so helpful to those distressed shopkeepers and antiques traders whose businesses were washed away. It created a real sense of community. It’s not always what you do but the spirit in which you do it that’s impressive,” says CEO Christine Lovett.
