Hampstead Garden Suburb residents have celebrated raising over £5,000 through an annual community charity day.
The annual Winter Fair, held in November at the Free Church Hall, in Northway, the Suburb, raised £5,123 for mental health charity Combat Stress to support war veterans.
Members of the Winter Fair committee gathered at the Free Church Hall earlier this month to hand over a cheque for the funds raised to Josephine Grace, a volunteer community fundraising manager for Combat Stress.
They were joined by former BBC war reporter and MP Martin Bell.
Mr Bell, a Suburb resident, cuts the ribbon at the fair each year.
