The wheel deal! Murphy lends van to CNJ’s food aid project

Construction firm keep food deliveries on the road

03 July, 2020 — By Dan Carrier

THEIR vans have been a fixture on the streets of Camden for decades – and now a vehicle with the famous Murphy logo emblazoned down its side has joined the fight against food poverty.

The family-owned Kentish Town-based construction firm have kindly lent the New Journal a set of wheels so we can continue with our food aid project, helping deliver kitchen store cupboard must-haves to older people, those suffering long-term health issues, and families needing a little bit of extra help to get by in these uncertain terms.

Vehicle manager Michael McCann said: “We are only too happy to help out. We have been part of this community for years and we’re proud to support the New Journal.”

Meanwhile, the Highgate Newtown Community Centre, which has been running two food hubs with the New Journal’s support, are hosting an online auction to raise much-needed funds. Lots range from art work to lessons and workshops by experts in a range of fields.

To make a bid, go to The auction runs from tomorrow (Friday) for one week.
