St George's Cathedral recognised for its years of dedicated service

Lambeth Mayor awards St George's Cathedral a "Certificate of Recognition" for its community service

St George's Cathedral, the Archdiocese of Southwark's Mother Church, has won an award of recognition from the Mayor of Lambeth for its significant contributions to the local community.

The award, presented by Mayor Cllr Sarbaz Barznji to Cathedral Dean Canon Michael Branch, praises the Cathedral for its "years of dedicated service to the Community". The work of the Cathedral to helping build a "healthy and vibrant community" is also praised.

As part of its ongoing commitment to serve the local community, St George's Cathedral is working in partnership with Oasis in running a Community Fridge. This innovative partnership project is aimed at saving some of the thousands of tonnes of excess food which go to waste in London every year. The food saved from waste by the project is available to anyone in Southwark and Lambeth to collect from the Oasis Community Fridge at Amigo Hall in St George's Cathedral, including those who are experiencing food insecurity.

The Mayor visited the Community Fridge to see the project first-hand, meeting the incredible volunteers who make the Community Fridge a reality. 

The Archdiocese of Southwark congratulates St George's Cathedral for their tremendous work in serving the local community.
