Mohsin Riasat and Paige Kay from the store visited the fridge, which is located at the Madni Masjid mosque on Merton Street, today (Thursday October 5) to hand over the money.

The fridge, which has been in operation for almost five years, is open every day and saves supermarket food from landfill waste to feed those struggling with food poverty.

Yasmin Kaduji from the Community Fridge said: “We have a lot of work to do, and your generous donation helps us get that important work done.”

Currently, the team behind the fridge is reaching out to local businesses in a bid to raise money to find a solution to their issue of storing food.

They have been keeping overstocked food in a gazebo. However, that has now become damaged.
