Taking care of business means taking care of people. And this year, Londoners have overwhelmingly shown the depth of their compassion and generosity, shattering the previous record with a 34 per cent increase of donations for the Business Cares Food Drive, which concluded today with its Day of Giving.

In total, 435,400 pounds of food (combined food and cash donations) were collected – an increase of 34 per cent over last year’s total of 325,500.
