The former Archibishop of Canterbury has given his first TV interview since taking up a senior position at Cambridge University. Dr Rowan Williams has become master of Magdalene College. Kate Prout reports.
The former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, pushed a trolley through the streets of Cambridge today to raise money for local food banks. Dr Williams has become master of Magdalene College since leaving office and taken on the role of patron of Cambridge City Food Bank.
He says: 'Although Cambridge seems like an affluent city more than 3500 people have been given emergency provisions in the last year alone.'
The food banks are run by the Trussell Trust and organised by volunteers from local churches who rely on donations of food from the public.
