West Hampstead’s Sherriff Centre has roped in TV royalty to present a charity auction in aid of its fifth anniversary next month.

Downton Abbey star Jim Carter, who played butler Mr Carson in the long-running ITV drama and lives in West Hampstead with fellow actor Imelda Staunton, will be presenting a November 7 auction to raise money to boost the charity's debt advisory service.

It will be held at the centre itself, inside St James' Church in Sherriff Road.

Jim said: "I am delighted to be able to support this local initiative.

"I'm really looking forward to hosting a wonderful night and encourage everyone to get to The Sherriff Centre for this worthwhile cause."

The event, sponsored by local estate agents Paramount Properties - and a number of anonymous donors - will see "an evening of relaxed music and entertainment".

This will include the auction, and complimentary drinks and canapes.
