CAMPAIGNERS raised hundreds of pounds at an event to support action against Brent Council’s decision to shut six libraries in the borough.

Residents campaigning to save Preston Library from closure spent last Friday collecting money outside Sainsbury’s, in Kenton, after taking the council to the High Court last month.

Campaigners launched the Brent SOS (Save our Six) Libraries campaign earlier this year against the council's decision to close Preston, Barham Park, Tokyngton, Cricklewood, Kensal Rise and Neasden libraries.

A three-day judicial review was held at the High Court last month and a result is due in October.

Campaigners continue to raise money for the cause and more than £300 was raised for the campaign last Friday.

On Sunday, September 18, Councillor Paul Lorber (Liberal Democrats) will take part in the Fryent Country Park 5km run in support of the campaign.
