Camden’s outgoing mayor Jenny Headlam-Wells handed over a cheque for £89,000 to the Camden Music Trust last week, after a year of fundraising.
The mayor, who has held several events including a music walk, and Q&A events with Michael Palin, and David Baddiel handed over the sum to the charity in the mayor's parlour on Thursday May 9.
The money will go towards funding a new Peter West award bursary, named after the outgoing head of the music service.
It will support music tuition for a Camden student.
Cllr Headlam-Wells, who represents Kentish Town, will continue as a patron after standing down this week.
