A Barkingside councillor who decided to run a weekly 5k to raise money for charity has raised more than £500 as he reaches the halfway point.
Earlier this year Cllr Khaled Noor set up a challenge to help raise money for families made destitute from coronavirus and has donated the money he’s raised so far to the Redbridge Foodbank.

Cllr Noor said: “While coronavirus does not discriminate in terms of who it infects, the impact of Covid-19 is disproportionately high for BAME communities.
“The coronavirus crisis has exposed the underlying deprivation and inequalities in health and society that exist within the UK.
