His Worship The Mayor of Islington, Cllr Troy Gallagher opened the market in celebration of his year in office. Throughout the year, the Mayor has supported three chosen charities - ICAP, forum+ and James Place – helping to raise funds and build awareness of their work. Cllr Gallagher is the first Mayor of Islington from the Republic of Ireland and has represented the Bunhill ward as a councillor since 2010.
icap provides counselling and psychotherapy mainly for the Irish community in Britain. They are committed to providing therapy for people who find it hard to access help, including those on low incomes and facing disadvantage.
forum+ is an independent charity working to promote equality for LGBTQ+ people in Camden and Islington, celebrating LGBTQ+ life in the boroughs and working to reduce social isolation and loneliness.
James’ Place mission is to stop men dying by suicide. They believe that every suicide is a preventable death, yet suicide is the leading cause of death in men under 50. At James’ Place, they help men in crisis to understand what they are going through, get through it and find hope for the future.
