A volunteer fundraiser raised hundreds of pounds for charity at a pop-up vintage clothes fair held in a former church.
Recent graduate Hania Gudiens collected £230 for Cancer Research UK by hosting a stall in the magnificent setting of St Stephen’s in Rosslyn Hill, Hampstead.
The 23-year-old, who starts an internship at the charity this week, began gathering vintage clothes from her local Cancer Research shop in May.
She said: “I have been fundraising for them for quite some time and I saw this opportunity to use some of the stock, which may be considered old fashioned.
“I’m really happy with how it went so I’ll be back again in December and hopefully it will be a regular thing.”
Ms Gudiens’s stall was part of a regular event run by Pop Up Vintage Fairs London, which also hosts fairs in Alexandra Palace.
St Stephen’s was filled with about 30 stalls, a vintage team room and the strains of a 1940s singing group.
