A Brent councillor is in the running to raise cash for internet and WIFI access in a new library at Sudbury Town tube station.

Cllr Paul Lorber, the leader of Brent’s Liberal Democrats, is supporting the latest initiative by the Friends of Barham Library and hopes to raise around £500 when he sets out on a 5k run around Wembley Stadium on October 6.

Cllr Lorber said: “Brent Council expects residents to access council services on line and yet Labour councillors made this impossible for many people by closing half of Brent’s libraries, including the one in Barham Park, Sudbury.”

Francis Henry, a Friends of Barham Library volunteer of Daniels Estate Agents in Sudbury, is one of Cllr Lorber’s sponsors.

He said: “Paul Lorber is a fantastic supporter of the library campaign in Brent and deserves our support.

“Providing access to computers at our new premises in Sudbury Town station will be a massive boost for local people.

“I urge all readers to make a small donation.
