Age UK Camden chief executive Nikki Morris said: "We are proud and honoured to shine a spotlight on some of Camden's diverse and vibrant shopkeepers, who so brilliantly represent the characteristics of the borough.

"The vibrancy of the area is reflected on the shelves of our charity boutique, there's always a one-off item to be found and we rely on the high quality of the pre-loved donations we receive to keep the business thriving.

"By purchasing our calendar you are helping to support older people throughout the borough to stay active, connected and living the best life they can."

The Age UK calendars can be bought at the charity's Leather Lane store, Holborn, or online.
