Cllr Awale Olad

Awale Olad is a local lad who lives in Holborn and went to William Ellis Secondary School. He currently coaches a local youth football team and gives up all of his spare time for charity work, campaigning for youth services, housing and education. Awale recently led a charity that champions the youth and enjoys serving as a Governor at a local Primary School.

Awale played an instrumental role in reforming the Brooke’s Court Tenants and Residents Association in Holborn and was immediately elected as the Secretary. He has helped improve the standard of cleaning in Baldwin’s Gardens, Brooke’s Market and Brooke’s Court and campaigned for better monitoring of littering in the area.

Awale also serves on the Safer Neighbourhood Panel that looks at ways of reducing crime in the area whilst campaigning hard for more facilities for local kids and people to use. An avid football player and fan, Awale recently represented Camden Labour in a charity football match for Bangladeshi disaster relief against the Camden New Journal, which was closely fought and ended 9-9. Each goal raised money for Bangladesh.
