Teen entrepreneur’s Highgate postcards pull in £1,000 for Lauderdale House

A teenage entrepreneur has officially launched his first business selling postcards of Highgate Village scenes to raise money for the restoration of a historic house.

Highgate School pupil Roch Briscoe, 14, sold thousands of his postcards, called N6 cards, at a launch party at Lauderdale House in Highgate Hill on Saturday.

He raised about £1,000 from sales on the night, with all profits going towards the house’s Lauderdale Transformed project - the £2.1million scheme to renovate the building.

Director Katherine Ives said: “It was very exciting, and now he just needs to keep it going.”

The postcards are on sale, in packs of 10 for £5, online and in several village shops.
