Lib Dem and Labour councillors team up for East Africa disaster fund - but suffer 5-2 defeat!

The Labour and Lib Dem team with Camden Somali Cultural Centre

PANTING politicians were unsurprisingly trounced in a charity football match on Saturday.

A hapless team of Labour and Lib Dem councillors were on the wrong end of a whopping 5-2 scoreline against the Camden Somali Cultural Centre as the final whistle blew on a game to raise funds for the East Africa famine appeal.

The centre, based in the Kingsgate Community Centre in West Hampstead, were comfortable winners in the fixture at Kilburn Grange Park.

Labour councillor Maryam Eslamdoust, who organised the fundraiser, said: “Their efforts helped raise £700 which will be donated via the Disasters and Emergency Crisis East Africa Appeal. 

“Millions of people in East Africa are facing desperate food shortages following the worst drought to hit the regions in 60 years, so thank you to all those who turned up in support.”
