The Team

Kristina Glenn

Director

I’ve been involved in Islington Giving since we first started to talk to trusts, businesses and residents about the idea of how we could put together unusual suspects to tackle stubborn issues of poverty and inequality in our borough. I’ve lived or worked in Islington for over 30 years and seen Islington change for the better in so many ways.

My favourite thing about Islington is… the amazing range of people who live here.

Sam Stensland

Communications

I joined Islington Giving in May 2016 and I support the management of its finances, helping to ensure that 100% of donations go towards supporting people in the borough. I also help manage the communications and media presence of Islington Giving, getting the word out to people not yet in the know.

My favourite thing about Islington… the energy, enthusiasm and affection many Islington residents have for this part of London.
